In order to clear my desk of some “rejected” images and backgrounds I decided to make three fairly similar cards. I often find that I will be making a card and think I want to use a specific image or background then find that there is a better alternative, these pieces often sit unused on my desk. I decided to create a simple background piece from some vellum to use with a few of the images I had already coloured and ready to go.
I embossed MFT’s Wavy Coloring Book Background with clear embossing powder on a piece of vellum. I then coloured the vellum using MFT blueberry hybrid ink over the embossed image. Once dried I cut the 6 x 6 background piece into three smaller pieces to use on three separate cards. I used Simon Says wave dies to create a waters edge on all three pieces. I attached Copic coloured Lawn Fawn images under the “water” background pieces. On one of the background pieces I removed the clear embossing powder with a Tombow Mono eraser make the image brighter. I finished all three with MFT Cloud 9 dynamics using a Spectrum Noir shimmer pen to add some glitter. Now the only dilemma is which one to use for the first fawnatics challenge.
