Backgrounds - I used five pan pastel colours to create this lovely background. Phalto Blue, Turquoise Shade, Neutral Grey, Magenta and Yellow Orchid. I had different sponges for each colour and added the colours, starting with blue, then magenta etc. I did two 4 x 6 pieces of card the same and stamped a Stampin Up image on one, cut it out with a circle die
and matted onto another Spellbinders scalloped circle. I then matted the other piece on black and adhered the image to the card and card blank. I then die cut a butterfly and sentiment and used the pan pastels in the same way. A very simple but effective card.
Now this background is done using Graph'it markers. Their challenge this week is backgrounds.
So I used the following pens : 7125,7105,6130,6120,4155,4110. I started with the darker shade and blended them down until I was happy with the result. I coloured two pieces of 4 x 6 and stamped an image from Stampin Up on to one of them and then cut it with a circle die. Cut out a Spellbinder scalloped circle in black and matted the image to it. The other piece I matted on back and adhered it to a scalloped white card. I stamped a sentiment and then cut out a butterfly and coloured it the same way. I don't know which card I like the best do you?
I have entered this card in the Graph'it Marker Challenge : http://graphitmarkers.blogspot.com
