My favourite cards to make are Christmas cards, my favourite colour is blue, and one of my favourite themes is animals. And I love trying new techniques to create backgrounds.
This background is created by using blue interference Perfect Pearls - sprinkled on my craft mat, spritzed with water, and then I smooshed into it with black watercolour paper. Hopefully you can see some of the shimmer in the photo. I added the die cut reindeer, stamped the sentiment in a similar blue, and had the perfect shade of blue shimmer cardstock for the base.
