Our theme this month is all about the background.

This baby has back…ground, that is 😉

 I pulled out my Faux Oxide Ink Technique to share,

as it makes a fun background!!

The colors for the background are:

Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Seaside Spray and Pacific Point.

After creating the background (technique video below),

you’ll want to stamp that gorgeous bloom from

Good Morning Magnolia in Basic Gray.

Next, use the stitched tag from the Wild Rose dies

to cut a piece of Shimmery White.

And, use letters from Hand Lettered Prose dies to cut

the sentiment from Basic Gray.

Embellish with

Granny Apple Green Textured Weave Ribbon and

Silver Metallic Thread.
