I hope your weekend is going well. So far, so good for me. I had the usual Saturday chores this morning. I planned an afternoon of stamping and baseball on TV, which has worked out well.
I am so thankful for the many stamping "rock-stars" that are generous in sharing techniques on their blogs for us all to learn from. One of those generous stampers is Sandy Allnock. Before I got out my supplies this afternoon, I was flipping though some blogs that I have bookmarked and came across this post of Sandy's. I watched her video, and a couple others where she uses the same background coloring technique, and decided to give it a try. It was super fun and I think looks pretty cool.
My card design is inspired by this week's Freshly Made Sketch by Narelle. I decided to do a flat card instead of using dies while using this background technique. It's day 16 for Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge and since this card is ALL coloring, I'm posting there too.
Thanks to Sandy for sharing with us how to make this fun and easy background.
Have a great Saturday evening and rest of the weekend and thanks for looking in.
