Scatty Jan  Wow just loved making my card, I added in a brickwork background and the fishes using some altered stencils from my portrait . I adored the colour palette , and although the card took me some time I really enjoyed making it, I think I shall be using  backgrounds more often. I used the lovely image Princess Jennifer Latte Bubble Bath

Cara......I enjoyed the challenge of creating a background for my image and while it didn't quite go to plan - I still had fun trying! I layered lots of blue shades to create a winter sky and added glitter and White Shake pen for sparkle and snow. I used the image Princess Jennifer Latte Decorating the Tree.

Nikky...I got so carried away with the background technique I did with the acetate last week I made 2 at the same time. I used the image Princess Jennifer Latte Happy Birthday to me from our fab sponsor...
 If you want to know how I made the background check back at last week's post - the technique is exactly the same....

I added plenty of shading behind and under the Chaise Longue, I really wanted it to look like it was up against a wall and 3 dimensional...I think we often under estimate the importance of greys and shadows and lighting. I was really chuffed with how this turned out the pink looks quite velvety i think which is exactly what I wanted.
Colours: Sofa: 5125, 5130, 5160 with lots of greys added for shadow.
Shadow greys: 9400,9402,9404,9406, 9408, 9909
Background: 6185, 5160, 2150, 1180

Kevin I had a lot of Fun playing with the background of this image called  Princess Jennifer Latte Bubble Bath.....

Background 6130.6140.6110.5115.5110 & mix it fluid

What great background ideas - we all had so much fun trying these techniques out, it's so easy to forget backgrounds and leave it all white and boring so have a go!
