Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi everyone, it's Christine here and I want to show you how to use a background stamps to add an extra element of interest to your  design. I love script stamps for a background either for mixed media or cards.

Card 1 I used a grey mixed media card stock and used some Inka Gold watercolours with Liquid platinum embossing powder. the script stamp is stamped in white.

Salut tout le monde, c'est Christine ici et je veux vous montrer comment utiliser des étampes d'arrière-plan pour ajouter un élément supplémentaire d'intérêt à votre conception. J'adore les étampes de script pour un arrière-plan, que ce soit pour les techniques mixtes ou les cartes. Carte 1 J'ai utilisé un papier cartonné gris et j'ai utilisé des aquarelles Inka Gold avec de la poudre à embosser Liquid Platinum. L'étampe du script est étampé en blanc.

Card 2 is similar with the bird stamp as the focus and some distressed edges.

La carte 2 est similaire avec une étampe d'oiseau comme point focal et certains bords déchirés.

Card 3 is on black mixed media card stock with Metallic Gansai Tambi paints, and white ink sentiment.

La carte 3 est sur du papier cartonné noir avec des peintures Metallic Gansai Tambi et un sentiment encré en blanc

All three are fabulous! Love the use of the white text stamp as background for each - such a different look depending on the colour of the cardstock. My favourite is the third one with the black cs and those gorgeous metallic blossoms.

Three amazing cards, Christine. Love the script as the background for your beautiful images. Especially LOVE the inka gold leaves, they are gorgeous! And the ripped edge on the bird card is such a wonderful detail. The gold watercolours really shine against the black card. Thanks for showing us three cards that are so totally different and use different colouring mediums. Always learn so much from you!
