well I'm snugged up on the couch tapping away, a nice place to be, especially since the temperature is dropping outside. We came verrry close to having our first frost the other day. But I don't mind a brisk walk in the morning and looking at all the gorgeous autumn colours is a lovely way to start the day :)
However my card today has more of a springy feel I think and a really fun textured background and that is what we want you to add this week at Just Add Ink - Just add a fun background. Now please note it must be a background you create using ink and/or paper. Go and check out the rest of the JAI DT for some fabulous and fun ideas!
I decided to seize the chance to try stamping on tissue paper. You do the stamping first and to be honest it looked Ok but nothing special till I scrunched it up and then adhered it to my base cardstock layer. It almost seems transformed - so very tactile and textural - it reminded me of fabric even! Since this challenge is all about the background I didn't want to cover it up too much. So since I some new dolly sizzlets to play with I made up a little medallion and topped it off with some rolled flowers and pearls and finished the front off with some linen thread detail.
This was definitely a fun way to add a background and I'll be trying it again! Thanks for visiting,
