Sending you love

I wonder if you ever see a technique and try it, but then don't know how to use the results of your labours. That happened with the backdrops for this card... it was so long ago that I made them, that I'm no longer sure of the technique I used. I know I used vellum, I think I used alcohol inks and blending solution... but I'm not sure.... anyway I quite like how the chopped up pieces look behind this die-cut. Speaking of which... I have had it for quite some time and never found a use for it before, until this sketch from Freshly Made Sketches
I simply added a plain white foliage die cut (Alexandra Renke) and a simple sentiment (Clearly Besotted)



  1. Yes, that happens to me often so I have a large collection of bits as a result. It is lovely to see you use some of yours and it is beautiful, love it xx

  2. It looks like alcohol ink and so pretty, Chrissie! It's always nice to use some of those backgrounds that we hoard.

  3. You've created such a beautiful background. I love it with the fresh, white leaves. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  4. Those backgrounds really are fabulous for the sketch. Lovely card. So glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  5. However you made it, your background is fabulous and really works with the white foliage. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  6. What a fabulous take on the sketch, Chrissie! This backdrop is absolutely amazing and I love how you made it pop with all this white. Thanks so much for joining us at freshly Made Sketches.


Thank you so much for popping by, I appreciate your comments!
