To make the background, I scribbled markers onto a non-stick surface, spritzed color with rubbing alcohol and also spritzed glossy cardstock. Next, I spritzed alcohol onto felt, and picked up color. I used combination of swirling and tapping on the cardstock to create the background. I just kept adding color until I liked it. I allowed it to dry completely.
Next, I used the swirl image in the Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Flying Colors set to stamp into the background. I spritzed the felt with the alcohol and tapped it onto the rubber. I quickly held the stamp down onto the background and slowly counted to 10. As it dried, the alcohol spread the color and them image pop out - subtle, yet adds to the texture of the background. I also tried spritzing directly onto the rubber and then stamp. You can see it creates a larger area. Depending on what you are looking for, you have choices.
For the Sheena butterflies, I repeated the same process for their background. NOTE: I did put on a fresh felt piece between color schemes. I stamped the image in black, sprinkled with emboss powder, and heat set.
To finish off the card, I cut out the butterflies, adhered them with dimensional tape and stamped the sentiment. The butterflies look like they are floating. I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy way to make a textured background.
NOTE: Be sure to work in a well ventilated area as the alcohol smell can sometimes be strong.
