I was asked a number of times how I created the background for this card so I thought I’d give you a quick step by step.
I love Gelatos for fun and bright splashed of color. They are fairly new to me, but dang are they ever fun to play with. I made random circles with three different colors (Peach, Guava & Grape) and then smudged them with my finger. You can also add water with a mister to get a more “watercolor” look but I decided I liked it without for this project.
Then I used my Big Shot and the Sizzix Flower Ring & Clusters embossing folder and ta da… beautiful and fun background. Can’t get much easier than that.
