  1. Oooo!! I’m loving all of these background techniques! Thank you for the inspiration…I have an idea… ;)

  2. Awesome projects by the designers team! The colors and the textures are AMAZING! I love the challenge theme (and the Dylusion products) and I will definitely try to participate. Thank you for the great inspiration!

  3. Adding multiple stamps and colors is something that doesn’t come naturally for me. It’s a real struggle. I guess I need to keep trying. I love the way these backgrounds look

  4. Gorgeous backgrounds!!! I love playing around with background techniques. This is going to be a fun challenge.
