Every month we like to try out different techniques using our digital stamps and share short tutorials, tips and tricks with you on our inspiration blog hop. Today I have a super fun DIY tip so you can achieve the look of those new layering background dies that are so popular now!
Using our new Strong & Courageous set with this bold roses, I knew I wanted a background with texture and pattern. I decided to try out one of my old background dies from Spellbinders to create a layered effect. I die cut the lattice 4 times in white and different tones of pink and adhered them shifting each one a little. The result is so neat and it really will cost you nothing since you can basically use dies from your stash! The white panel was actually embossed with the same die to continue the pattern (and it coordinates perfectly)!
To break all the pink I added a bold green with the leaves and inked my silver foiled sentiment with black ink. All the coloring was done with Zig Markers. Images were printed in laser. Sentiment was foiled with Silver Deco Foil. A very simple yet attractive and neat card.
