Thinking of You

I have been watching a lot of Jennifer McGuire videos while walking on the treadmill. She has been showing a lot of inky backgrounds lately. That reminded me that I have a lot of pre-made backgrounds. Several years ago, I received three boxes of "junk" from a co-worker of my son. She must have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, judging by the materials in the box. I sorted through every single bit of the "stuff." I tossed a lot out, but kept a lot, too. That is where this background, and many more, came from. I plan on making a lot of cards with them, so be prepared! LOL!

This particular background was done on acetate. I added it to a piece of white cardstock and mounted it on foam squares. You can't see it very well in the picture, but there is silver ink in the background. So, I used silver cardstock to die-cut the sentiment. I also cut three more of the sentiment out of white and glued them together for added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Great card design choice for this inky background.
A friend gave me some Yupo and I've brought the alcohol inks out again to try it out. Mine don't look anywhere near as nice as your sample!

That background is so vibrant and pretty. When I enlarged the photo, I could see the bits of silver mixed in with the blue. The silver sentiment looks perfect on it. I love this card so much!

Wow, this is pretty! The dimension with the panel popped up and the sentiment layered really adds to the interest, as if that gorgeous background wasn't enough all by itself. Love it lots!
