I don't know what the technique is called. I made my own backgrounds by rubbing ink pads on a mat, spraying it with water, and then pressing the card stock onto it. Is that called smooshing? Having a senior moment here? Help!
Anyway, I made my own backgrounds for these 2 cards.
The turtle and sentiment are from Technique Tuesday. The turtle is lightly colored with Prismore colored pencils. Behind the turtle is some shimmer paper from SU. I popped up the turtle with foam tape. The sea shells are stickers, also from SU.
The green one has a retired SU stamp and sentiment. The bird is also lightly colored with pencils. I sponged some Pool Party around the bird for a little sky. Behind the bird is a piece of green vellum stamped with seaweed from SU.
I am using the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
The green one I will keep in my stash.
The blue one will go in the stash for Send A Smile 4 Kids
