GKD designer monthly blog hop!


dt chal 1014

Welcome to our monthly designer blog hop!  Gina challenged us to use our favorite background technique but I have to admit I spaced out on this tidbit of important info and I made a card using paper-piecing (the vase) and metallic rub on paste around the perimeter of my new Lacey Circles nestabilities die (technically that’s what I used for the background right?).  I really feel silly about this but hope you like my card anyway! 

The stamp set I used is Buds & Vases by Melanie.  I kept my card base clean & simple because I have my beautifully ornate paper Basic Grey Olivia for the vase and wanted the flowers to be the focal image.  I drew inspiration for my card from the paper: bubblegum pink, turquoise sea and moonlit fog. I used the pink stitched ribbon in the romance ribbon assortment and tiny rhinestones on the die.

To see the rest of the designer’s favorite background techniques, please visit their blogs:

Thanks for stopping by – hope you have a fabulous Friday & weekend!!

LOL. I had to re-define the meaning of "background technique" in order for mine to qualify, so I'm sure yours fits the new expanded definition. Gorgeous card, Donna!
