Background Pop Technique

As long as I was creating, I did another one of Sara's sketch challenges from her Desperate Stamper blog. This is sketch #2.

I had a technique class last night and this is one of the cards from it. The technique is called Background Pop. I have not done it in a long time and forgot how much fun it is. We do two cards and one 6 x 6 page for their books at this class. The 6 x 6 describes the technique so they can reference it at a later time.

Here is a close up of the butterfly ......

Supplies used:
Paper: Bashful Blue, Close to Cocoa and Blue Bayou
Ink: Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Basic Black
Other supplies: Scallop Circle Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Ticket Corner Punch, paper piercer, white gel pen, rhinestone brad.
Stamps: retired Wonderful Wings, Paisley, In the Spotlight and the retired Warmest Regard.

Hope you enjoy!
