Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by.
The card i have used, is Bockingford Hot Pressed watercolour card (cut to 5" x 7")
Using a fan brush and some clean water, i tapped some of the water onto the background, as seen in the following picture.
I allowed the water to soak in for about ten to fifteen seconds before laying a tissue across the top of the card, to soak up the water.
As you can see, once the tissue was lifted, I was left with a lovely faux bleached background. I love using this technique to add depth.
I then trimmed the card down to 6.5" x 4.5".
I love these little background stamps, they're really versatile.
I then added the little shooting stars, and hanging star, masking off the area at the top of the card, to vary the length of the hanging stars.
I love these sentiments too, "Learn to love your inner monster" and "Trust your own craziness".
Aren't these little guys the cutest dragons ever.
I attached the background to a layer of 300 gsm black card, then applied some foam pads to each dragon, and attached them to the card. Once this was achieved, i attached it to a 5" x 7" card base in landscape to finish the card off.
See below, the finished card. Just wish you could see the sparkle from the hint of gold sprays, might take a video later and add it. Hope you enjoyed this little blog. Thank you fiery much for reading.
