  1. Beautiful cards and technique I am going to try it with a stencil over the stamp after the first ink is down. I hope it works.

  2. Thanks for showing so many techniques for making the backgrounds. I can see where there might me times you might want the softness, and times you might want something bolder too. As for the harder lines one the one background, I wonder if misting with just a *bit* of water would soften the lines without softening the colors. I think I know what I’ll be playing around with later today!

  3. Such a pretty background! Thanks for demonstrating this great technique! I love the addition of the gold word and heart! Gorgeous!

  4. Interesting use of the fun craft foam….will have to see if that is ends up being cheaper than dimensionals or foam tape…love the finished cards and the two-tone background!
