Backgrounds and Besties

Let's play with Besties and Backgrounds and make some Summer Fun! 

Fluffy Sunshine Girl

I decided this Fluffy needed a shimmering pool of summer fun and I didn't want it to be the same old blue oval. She might be headed to the water but this girl needs some sun; Rose Gold to the rescue!

I started with simple blue cardstock and used an embossing folder to add some  dots for texture and fun.  Then I used a 2nd folder with the Summer Fun sentiment, I love this effect!  

I went over the piece lightly with Distress Ink in Picket Fence to make the embossed images pop. I used a water brush to detail the sentiment with Distress Ink in Peacock Feathers. The entire front was misted with my DIY Rose Gold Shimmer Spray. Find that Recipe HERE.  This was just the shine I needed compliment this Fluffy.  

Distressing the edges with more of the white was the final touch for this piece. 
I love the effect of one image embossed over another.
The White gives the Aqua the base needed to stand out over the background. 

Stay tuned for how this card comes together in a future post. I am part of the KoalaTCrafts Design Team and the July Challenge is being sponsored by Sherri Baldy My Besties. You can enter for a chance to win a Fluffy Sunshine Girl or twinkle Toes Troll HERE.

About Me

I'm a Texas mom of adult kids who has been playing with paper my entire life. I love to create! What's more, I find that I am overall a happier person when I spend time creating things. Be it Art, Food or Decorations. I am an event coordinator by profession and have used my skills to create elaborate room designs, tablescapes, invitations and favors for weddings, parties of every occasion, fundraisers and corporate events. I create jewelry, stained glass and paintings but mostly, I love paper! Many of my projects are for others as gifts or swaps with other creative people I am blessed to call friends. I use tools to create pattern paper and embellishments to get the most bang for my buck. In my blog, I share my creations along with tips, tricks, techniques and tools used to get specific effects.
