Water's Edge

Hi and welcome to my blog. Today I am showing a card I made using the Penny Black Cat's Tales stamp.

I love making background techniques and I have bags full of different backgrounds that I have made over the years. This is a very old background I made where I used shimmery inks and smooshed the glossy paper into the inks. I thought this background went very well with the cattails. Sequins were added for interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

How pretty, April! This background has a lot of movement, and it looks like the cattails are there on a windy day!

Lovely background. A very pretty card. Cat tails remind me of my childhood. I always liked them. [Bunny]``
