Today I would like to share a basic tutorial on how I make my backgrounds. I love incorporating lots of different products into my background especially stamps. You can customize your backgrounds to put on cards, canvases, layouts or any altered project.
Here I Am Background Stamp
Palette Ink Pad
Pigment and Glimmer Ink Sprays
I started out with a blue cardstock. I applied a little bit of gesso to my background and dried it with a heat tool.
I sprayed my various colored glimmer and pigment sprays to my background and allowed the paint to drip down my cardstock.
I inked my background stamp with blue ink and randomly stamped it onto my background.
I distressed and inked the edges of my cardstock and then added it to a kraft colored card base. Complete by adding layers of embellishments and stamped images.
You can find this tutorial as a FREE PDF file in the Red Rubber Designs store.
