Colour Blocking

Did you know that you can create some sensational backgrounds for your cards by just using your ink pads and acryclic blocks. The technique is know as colour blocking.

The ladies in my Virtual Club were given the instructions on how to create wonderful backgrounds using  this technique.

Here are a couple of cards that I created using colour blocking as the background for my stamped image.

 As you can see this technique created some amazing backgrounds. They add just a  little something special to the card and gives it a more 'artsy' feel.
 
I also decided that these backgrounds needed something special on them, so I coloured the flower using Blendabilities. Yes, I am officially in love with Blendabilities. I stamped the flower and stem onto the background, then stamped another flower onto another piece of card. I then coloured it, cut it out and mounted in onto the card using dimensionals.
 
I love playing with new techniques to see what I can do. It is so much fun. I love that my job lets me be creative every day and do what I love. If you want to do the same, make sure you speak to me about joining my team.
