PTI March Blog Hop...Backgrounds
March Blog Hop from PTI...
Background building sets have rapidly become one of Papertrey's signature traits. For this month's Blog Hop, we want to see all of your very best backgrounds. They can be multi-colored or monochromatic. Simple or elegantly detailed. They can be created with a set originated for that purpose or a reinvention of images that were not. Be sure to include a separate photo of your completed background BEFORE
you add it to your project so we can see it in all its glory!
For my project today I used the Acetate Tissue background. To to this I cut a piece of acetate the size of a card front, then on the back I put down a layer of lacquer, on top of that layer dots of reinker in Noir and Fresh Snow. You move this around on the acetate then put a crumpled layer of Tissue Paper over the ink. (USE Gloves for this process.) When that was dry I embossed the Damask on the opposite side in Red.
