This was one of those backgrounds that involved layers and layers, which is one of my favorite things! I began by stenciling texture paste through the leaf stencil onto smooth Bristol paper and allowed it to dry. I stamped some leaves on tissue wrap and added them with gel medium onto the piece. Then I added and blended Distress Inks to cover the background with color. I stenciled some pattern as well with the ink until I was pleased with the colors and overall appearance. For some final sparkle, I sprayed and spattered some copper and pewter inks in a couple of places. I added the die cut and stamped sentiment, then tied the charm and twine onto the card with the Freshly Made Sketches sketch as inspiration. I mounted the card front onto the card base with an extra vertical strip of cardstock for visual balance. Thanks for visiting.
