Had a lovely afternoon trying out a few techniques I learned from my good friend Anne who also very kindly gifted me some supplies to make this ATC. Her background technique is explained here and I used Seedless Preserved Distress Paint and Fresco Finish in Snowflake for it which worked brilliantly together. Then the fun bit with the texture paste - Anne suggested sprinkling this while it was still wet with various colours of Perfect Pearls - I used Heirloom Gold and Green Patina, then dried that with the heat gun - oooh, lovely effect!
Thanks Anne - really enjoyed getting messy and I've got quite a few more ATC backgrounds ready to go! Thanks also to my followers - I do appreciate you coming along to see me and any comments you leave too. Margie x
