I was inspired by the backgrounds made by the lovely Kate Crane aka "The Kathryn Wheel". I was inspired to make a card because it was Rachael's birthday the next day :)
I started by painting on some paints onto my card fronts - being careful to keep each colour separate. I let it dry then repeated 2 more times (for depth and interest).
Then I used some different background stamps and stamped over the yellow paint with yellow ink and the teal paint with teal ink. Then I used different sized bottle caps and stamped (using white and black paint) randomly across the card. When it was dry I added some squirts of black paint then left to dry completely (took about an hour).
Then I got my chipboard and painted parts and left others raw.
Here is the finished product. This first card is the one I gave Rachael for her birthday.
This next card is a more masculine variation.
