Sin City Scraps - Smile the World is Waking

Sin City Scraps
Can you believe spring will be here in just a few more weeks...rom the birds singing, to flowers bloom, to bamboo covering the yard it will be Spring. Beautiful colors, rebirth of plants and trees, beautiful colors and warm sunny days it will be Spring. So I would like to share with you how to make a background with Distress Stains and a Black Zig Marker.
Started with a piece of water color paper and distress stain to make my background, making sure to overlap a bit.
Once the stains are placed on the watercolor paper, take your H2O pen and blended them together. Make sure you allow the stains to dry thoroughly before doing your line work with your zig pen or it my run. (I used my embossing gun to speed up the time)
Stamp several Heartfelt Posy Patch Flower onto a piece of Miss Caroline paper from My Minds Eye. I fussy cut all of the pieces out and rolled them with my McGill Blossom Tool set so they would have dimension, also added a gemstone to each of the centers. Place your blue mesh down and then add your flowers you have prepared. with glue dots. I actually stapled the edges of the blue mesh down to hold into place. Make sure to stamp your sentiment on to your card. I did mine after I glued the flowers on but you may want to do this before. I hope you try making your backgrounds and try your hand at fussy cutting your stamped images. Hugs Pammejo
