Creating Backgrounds with Creative Expressions

Hello again, it’s Friday, and my blogging day for Creative Expressions.

I have made this A5 card, matting and layering a number of embossed and stamped layers, to frame the focal tags at the centre.

CE 18Mar16

I have used Indigo Mist colour cloud ink to for all the stamping, and also to colour the ribbon – the colour coordinates beautifully with the heather foundation cardstock also by Creative Expressions.

I am in the process of filming my first demo videos, to share with you the techniques I have used to create my cards. I had the video running while I made this card – but the thing is, it took me a bit longer than I anticipated and the video runs for about 50 minutes……ooops!

Don’t worry I wont make you sit through all of that, so I am learning (quickly) and picking out the most interesting and useful parts for you to watch, so please be patient while I get that sorted for you. Normally I would have had step by step photographs for you but, obviously with the video running (and me happily chatting away to myself/you) it went completely out of my head. I can however let you know what I have used;
