FIVE YEARS and counting
Topic: Backgrounds

First of all, I'd just like to say "Happy Blog-iversary to ME"! I started this blog 5 years ago today and have posted every single day of that 5 years. That's quite an accomplishment!

Now - on to the art!

 

Today I pulled out the waxed paper background with the repeating hearts. I gave it some table scrap layers and stamped the text repeatedly to echo the heart pattern. I pulled the rabbit out of the hat again and lightly inked it. Then, by sanding the surface, I revealed the raised dots. I added punched flowers over the stamped ones and gave each a Liquid Pearl center. The finishing touch was faux stitching around the edges.

For this card I used a single width of the heart paper and lots of different table scraps. I worked to bring out the orange tones this time. I stamped the house and text from the Hero Arts / OWH set and added the heart over the door. I used a grey marker to create shading on the house parts, too.

So, I had one strip of the heart background left and it was two hearts wide. More table scraps create a center box which is stamped with another of the Hero Hart / OWH sets. Love this sentiment.

Not only do I have lots of these waxed paper backgrounds but by judicious planning (or dumb luck) I can get multiple cards out of each one.
