Good morning everyone! Remember the Tessatina die I used on this card a few days ago? I was playing with making backgrounds and two cards were born as a result. This is the other one. Totally different look to it, right? This card was inspired by a color scheme I saw on Design Seeds called 'Crashing Hues'. I fell in love with it and had to translate it onto a card.
So I matched up the colors to cardstock I already had, SU's Soft Sky, Baja Breeze, PTI's Soft Stone, Ocean Tides and Smoky Shadow. The colors look amazing together! Want to know how I got those super delicate die cuts glued onto the paper? That was a PITA and if anyone has any tips for gluing them down, please share!
I poured a small puddle of decoupage glue onto a piece of acetate, then rolled a brayer through it, then brayered glue to the back of the die cut. It worked OK, but a bit of glue ended up getting on the front of the die cut. I had to put a thin coat of decoupage glue all over the finished background after gluing down all the die cut strips to hide it.
It's a very pretty background though, and I love it. I colored Stamping Bella's 'Lucille Sends her Love' in blue green and grey Copics.
I made all the flowers in matching colors using a daisy punch from The Punch Bunch.
Well, that's it! Thanks for stopping by!
