To do all my backgrounds I used a bit crazy technique that I really love. I simply used up the watercolour paper I was stamping on for other projects. I saw one day a great piece by Helen Chilton done this way, and I was very impressed. I just added a few stenciled images, playing with my Tando masks and inks (you can make out Dylusions Vibrant Turquoise e.g. on the next one... I also played with various Distress Ink pads and my Picked Fence stain to produce large splatters, and then also Brilliance dew drops applied directly here and there, this is so fun to make and I love the effect!). My backgrounds were done some time ago, so I can't give you more details on the process, but I remember that I applied a coat of white acrylic paint (PA Snowflake) a bit diluted at some stage to smooth the colors... I also used white and black markers on some areas.
On this first card you can see Kaz Boughton's 'Dotted Star' and Andy Skinner's 'Burning Rubber' in the background, and Andy's 'Doll face' on the foreground. I was not able to find this latter product into the shop to link it, maybe it is out of stock or has been withdrawn from sale I'm sorry.
I'm very happy with this one because I also played with my new Silks Acrylic Glaze paints for the first time!! I have not many of them of course so far, but those colours I have were perfect to highlight my face. I used Vavoom Red, Stargazer, Fire Opal and Pomegranate.
On the next cards, I played with my JOFY stamps collection for stamping, and with my masks 'Dotted Star', 'Burning Rubber' and 'Code Breaker'.
