Creating your own background for your projects is so fun to do. Whether you are making a card, scrapbook page, canvas, or something else, you can completely customize the look you are going for!
The Naturally Aged kits from Tattered Angels makes backgrounds so fun and easy to do. They have a wide selection of the kits. For this card I used their Rusty Metal paint system.
You use a combination of 4 different paints and apply them according to the directions in the kit to give you a fabulous faux finish,
Most of the work for this card went into the background. After I had that done and dried, I added the embellishments on top. I really wanted the background to stand out, so I used just a small cluster of some interesting things.
First, I put down a strip of vellum that I melted some gold embossing powder around the edges of. Then, I colored the die cut feathers using Antique Linen Distress Ink and some Pearl Glimmer Mist. I dried it with my heat tool holding the heat very close and just burning the paper a little bit.
Next, I put down a few scraps of fabric, and some metal gears that I got from LolliBeads.
I added a little heart that I colored with Vintage Pink Glimmer mist and some Camel Glimmer Glam.
I mounted the background on a black cardstock card base.
That's the card for today! Hope you enjoy it!
