Good morning friends. Today I’m sharing how I made this background featuring Cat fish digi stamp.
I got these distress oxide inks for mothers day and wanted to do something fun and quick. The whole background took about 5 minutes and it was super fun to make.
To start I cut down a piece of 110lb card-stock to 8.5 x 4.25 and scored it in half for my card base.
I started working from the outside towards the center adding a little bit of color at a time.
This is faded jeans. Then I add in broken china.
Next is spice marmalade.
I love how the colors blend together so easily. Next is fossilized amber.
I liked the look of the background, but wanted to add a touch of texture as well. I grabbed a fish scale stencil and cracked pistachio and lightly sponged the color on through the stencil.
Cute, right? Now, while I was coloring this adorable little cat fish… my coloring got away from me. I do not know WHAT on earth I was doing, but I didn’t love what I had done to this poor cutie. See.
Ahhh, now he kinda makes sense to me, and he’s cute again. *grins*
There we have it. What backgrounds have you created that are quick and fun? Let us know!!
