We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop - Creative Backgrounds


Thank you for joining our team blog hop.  This month we are featuring creative backgrounds, which I'm very excited about.  I have not done a creative background in awhile, so it was nice to think outside the box for a minute. 

Now the card itself is very simple, but that is because I did not want to take away from the beauty of the background.  I hope you like it.  Also, I have not used Watercolor Paper in a long time, nor the Gilded Leafing flakes.

(I just had to show you how reflective and shiny the gilded leafing flakes really are)

  • My ink colors are Fresh Freesia, Soft Sea Foam and Flirty Flamingo. 
  • I fully saturated my watercolor paper with water in my spritzer, put several drops of reinker of each color, and spritzed more water. 
  • Keep a paper towel handy to catch pooling and run off water. 
  • You can quickly dry with the heat tool.

Using Multipurpose liquid glue, I drew lines all over and then covered with the gilded leafing flakes.  Its a bit messy but I always love how projects shine.  I covered the Happy Birthday and Stars dies with glue and flakes too as I wanted everything in gold to match.  

Hint:  My Embossing Additions Tool Kit was a huge help in keeping the mess of the flakes to a minimum!  Tweezers to hold my dies cut down, brush to scrub away the extra flakes and a tray to catch (almost) all of it in.
