I tried out a new technique on this card too. I used an acrylic block to stamp the background of my garden scene, which I've used before, but this time I sprinkled salt over the area and left it to dry naturally. It's created some lovely patterns in the background, although most of the lower ones are relegated to subtly showing through the foliage. The flowers were coloured with diluted ink and a paintbrush. (Aquapainters are on the wishlist.)
Since I rarely use even one patterned paper in a card, the prospect of using three in one card was a bit scary! Thankfully, Stampin' Up papers coordinate so beautifully.
Update: So pleased to be picked as A Cut Above at The Paper Players.
