I have had a little time to play lately and these are my creations. There are a number of background techniques here. The one immediately above I have stamped onto a Mica distress background which has then been mounted onto a kitchen paper towel which has been gessoed & coloured. I did not make the paper towel background on this one, I was lucky enough to be given some samples. The image I used is an Italian street scene. These cards are now winging their way to some special people for their birthdays.
The top "B" card was stamped onto a Tartan background.
