Interlock
Topic: Backgrounds

Back to the background made with waxed paper in the Cuttlebug...

I made two with the same interlocking circles folder. One is color blended with extreme pastels and one is spot-colored with brights. What amazingly different effects with one folder!

The soft-toned one got strips and circles of pastel designer papers and then I stamped over all of them with the greeting. Where the strip edges were I had to do a little touch-up with a fine black pen to fill the gaps. I found the tag in my stash but it was too large so I trimmed both width and length for a better fit, tied sheer ribbon through the hole and mounted it on foam tape.


The brighter background is so busy and beautiful that I didn't want to cover it up or take away from it too much. I had this lovely table scrap that has a gradation of Glimmer Mist colors and they matched beautifully. I added a strip of Martha Stewart patterned tape under it. The image is stamped with Festive Berries distress ink on golden-yellow paper. I used a gold Krylon pen to border the edges and add some flecks and stripes in the image.

I stamped the text on the paper strip and mounted the image with foam tape.
