Remember these posts from me, Ellie?
Remember that, on an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course … Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds?? I did a second post about that too:
Today’s post features the beautiful vibrancy of the Minx Shimmering Inks.
The background on canvas paper.. still wet but drying in the sun!
Later on, I discovered that I must have dropped some water on it by mistake, as it had more drops than showing on this photo… that’s part of the fun!
I had to be everywhere, because the robot lawnmower wanted to mow over my backgrounds sometimes, hehe.
I wanted to enhance the drops, so I did not cover it up, but overstamped and used the background as part of the images.
Don’t forget.. there is a Snapguide at the end of this post, showing the steps to achieve the finished card.
A close-up: watch the droplet… with the inks all pushed to the edges of it. I think that’s magic… I couldn’t have painted it that way!
Now for the second background: very different paper, but a beauty too!
I cut it to size…
… and created this:
I sponged these tiny dots from the Lotus Stencil around the edge.
…for step-by-steps of this second card too, please see the Snapguide.
