Making Your Own Background |Woodland Tea Party

Hi, BRI friends!

It's Dana here with another Wednesday inspiration. Today, I used Hero Arts and Waffle Flower Crafts products I recently got from Butterfly Reflections Ink shop. Here is what I came up with.

I started by watercoloring the big tree for background. I brushed brown shades of Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor paints with water on watercolor paper. After dried it completely, I drew woodgrain with general fine liner. I only have a water based pen with brown color, but it's not bad if you don't have plan to retouch it with water. 

Next, I stamped images from Hero Arts Woodland Tea Party Stamp Set and colored them with Copic markers and cut them using scissors. It's a my first Hero Arts clear stamp and I really love this! There are many cute images to be able to build several fun scenes! After coloring, I added highlights to some of them with white gel pen as well.

I die cut domes and other elements using Waffle Flower Crafts A2 Nested Domes Dies from woodgrain, white, black card stocks. I ink blended the dome from white card stock with dye inks.

I arranged colored images on toned dome and combined the result with dome frame. For sentiment from same stamp set, I white heat embossed it onto black die cut panel and foam mounted it with hemp cords as shown in the picture.

To finish, I embellished Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles using Multi Medium Matte and mounted watercolor panel to white card base.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for stopping by!
