Boy do we have a super fun challenge for you this week at TGIF Challenges. The challenge is to create and come up with your won background. I love a challenge that is so wide open to interpretation.
I created this fun HO HO HO watercolor background. It was fairly simple to make. First I wet the watercolor paper and created a Bermuda Bay watercolor wash with an Aqua Painter. When the paper was still wet I stamped the HO HO HO in Bermuda Bay ink onto the wash. The stamped image bleeds a bit in certain areas but remains crisp in others depending on how wet the watercolor paper was. I’m loving these results! You can see where I tried this technique again here on this dinosaur card.
The candy cane images come from the Candy Cane Season stamp set. These are stamped in Poppy Parade and punched out using the Candy Cane punch. These sweets are so cute and chunky!
Are you ready to try your hand at creating a custom background? Full details can be found on the TGIF Challenge Blog. Thanks for visiting.
