There is a new theme up over at Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, and since it is my birthday, it is a theme after my own heart…Spectacular Backgrounds! What does that mean, well, simply make something in the background that feels spectacular, from a well colored scene, to a well blended or embossed background. Really, there are so many ways to make cool backgrounds, why don’t you simply try to impressed the Design Sweeties this week.
We are sponsored this week by Crafty Sentiments, who is offering a generous prize to one random participant, so why don’t you join in this week and play around.
For my project, I pulled the image Relaxing, and printed it out onto some card stock. Then I proceeded to color nothing of the digital image, but her skin. I wanted the background to be the real start of the show.
Using my copics, I colored in a sunset type ombre using a variety of oranges and blue, letting the stars just peek out into the sky. In the end, I didn’t quite end up with the sky I wanted, but I came close.
To finish the card, I stamped out some stars and added a star themed sentiment. I also matted the project in some black cardstock and adhered everything to an A2 card frame!
I can’t wait to see your spectacular background. Till the Happy Crafting.
