Video: Textured background with embossing paste, distress spritzer and distress inks


I had some free time yesterday so I started playing around with some products I hadn’t had a chance to use before! Just look at that background! It was created with different mediums and I just fell in love with it! The specks? Created with the distress spritzer.…. The ombre of colors? Distress inks? But wait, there is more…..


The shine! Look at it… So gorgeous! I could have left the background alone pre shine, but I wanted to see what pearlescent embossing paste would look like it and I fell in love…. I added some more shine to the sentiment bubble with this embossing powder! Yum. Delicious… I fell in love with it so much, I decided to film a video for you all showcasing how I made the background. I changed up the images a bit, but both cards uses this Mama Elephant stamp set..


You can watch the video right here on the blog or over on my youtube channel in HD!

I had so much fun just trying out different things…  Thanks so much for stopping by!
