TLC389 ~ Blissful Backgrounds ~ (8/6/12)
TLC389 ~ Blissful Backgrounds ~ (8/6/12)

Today I typed "background" in the search window on the SCS Resources page, and 68 results came up! For this week's challenge, I would like for you to do the same thing, and choose one of those background techniques for your project.

It could be one you have done before and especially like, or a brand new one you have never tried!

I used the Ink, Spray and Smash Technique for my sample:

I hope you will play along!

Judy what a fun challenge. I got to do something I hadn't ever done and didn't know existed. I learned something within 10 minutes of waking!
Here's my card.

hobbydujour 08-06-2012 05:38 AM

Fun challenge, Judy. I used brayered sky, but added a twist so maybe it's "brayered sky PLUS". Thanks for another fun challenge......and one that combines well with the CAS. I LOVE the Olympics, so I spend my day watching them and not making cards. ; )


Cook22 08-06-2012 06:12 AM

I was going to go for Faux Patina which I nearly used for Lydia's last challenge, but decided to try something new, and went for Heated Pearls.

Here's my card -- Birthday Grid. I guess you can tell by the title which background I used.

peeps321 08-06-2012 07:08 AM

I had no idea there were so many techniques for making a background!!!! After much consideration I went with smackin' acetate by Beate. Here's my card. Thanks for a fun challenge Judy.

My Blissful Background for TLC389

I am not a paid member so this is only way I think of to participate... by attaching the file to this post

I used to the Embossed Embossing technique, only I made a little modification!!
Instead of using the brayer on the already embossed image, I used the brayer and applied dazzle versamark to the negative side of my embossing folder. Then I inserted the paper and ran it through my machine. I applied the embossing powder and heat set it.

I love this technique and really love the way this particular combination came together - I makes me think of a beautiful piece of turquoise!!

Thank again for the inspiration!!

UnderstandBlue 08-06-2012 08:59 AM

Wow - that is stunning!!

You don't need to be a paid member to play. Check out the video in my signature for how to upload that gorgeous card to your gallery.


yellowrose46 08-06-2012 09:07 AM

Shabby Jo, your card is awesome! You don't have to be a paid member to start a gallery and upload cards, but I think you may have to have 10 posts, so go ahead and leave some comments on the other gals cards and soon you will be able to upload cards.

ShabbyJoDesigns 08-06-2012 09:31 AM

I think I figured out what the problem was.... I feel really stupid now!! My files were 201.2kb, so they were too big! I totally looked over the overall size limitation. I am so sorry gals, I'll wake up at some point!! My Turquoise Baby is now in my gallery, yaahhh!!!

And thank you for your generous compliments!!

UnderstandBlue 08-06-2012 09:54 AM

awesome! :)

I haven't done any internet challenges for a few weeks it seems like.

Who knew how many BG choices there were? Thanks Judy for this fun challenge. I did cheat a little and combined with two DTGD challenges...here is my Fish You Were Here card.

wandabox 08-06-2012 01:37 PM

I chose "Smackin Acerate" background technique.

It is fun to get back to the challenges again! It's been a long time since I did them it seems.

You will see my blue and white (CAS challenge as well) card using the grid technique, here:

Thanks for the super challenge, Judy! Tried a new one, too! Here's my Bookmark Set. Thanks so much for looking!

1pamperedstamper 08-06-2012 04:35 PM

Apparently in the middle of the website upgrade, the resource page search no longer goes where you want it to go. I did a search for backgrounds and it keeps going back to the home page.

MelodyGal 08-06-2012 04:36 PM

I have been having a great time, Judy, making backgrounds and stamping images on them. I have not yet actually made a card. :) Hopefully before the week is out, I will produce something uploadable. Thanks for a great challenge.

I see where someone already stated this but when you try to search on the tutorials page it goes back to the home page.

AlliCraft 08-08-2012 03:01 PM

Great challenge - it took me forever to pick a technique (lol). I finally decided on the striped wipe technique which inspired me to break out my SU! Tart & Tangy set. Here's my card.

yellowrose46 08-08-2012 04:43 PM

It didn't take me long to find a technique, but I had to work on it quite a while to make it work! I used the water stamping technique featured on this Wednesday's tutorial.

I've never heard of being a paid member. What does that entail? What are the benefits? Any information would be appreciated.,

Aileen8 08-08-2012 08:07 PM

What a pretty card. I really like it.
