As you probably know from reading my blog that I'm a Technique Junkie... that is, I get the Technique Junkies Newsletter and LOVE it! This technique comes from the most recent newsletter and is called "Antique Wallpaper". I used a Cuttlebug folder to create a texture on the ivory cardstock but, by the time I was done, there was NO texture on the cardstock. That's the idea. Anyway, I again used one of TAC's new stamps, Give Praise to Him.
I'm not going to give away how I did this but if you decide to purchase the newsletter I'd appreciate you giving my name as a reference. There is a link embedded in the TJ logo in my sidebar to check it out.
Here's a close up of the background. I used Burnt Umber and Raw Sienna PH inks and some oval cutters. This is a small card, 4 1/4" square. I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the butterfly's antenna. Really cool in real life!
