The Background!

 It's All About the Background! That is the theme for the Monthly Challenge at Gina K. Designs and so for this background on my scene I chose to use my blending brushes to create one and then stamped in the images later on.



The first thing I did was to die cut a large circle using Gina K. Designs largest circle die from a Post-It Note to create a mask. Then I fastened this mask onto white card stock and then with the blending brushes I blending in the colors. Once I had that done I was ready to stamp the scene. For this scene I used several of Gina K. Designs stamp sets.....Framescape Winter Trees, Life is Good and the sentiment was from By the Sea 2 set. The sun was made using the little circle design on the Little Hello Layering Stencil Bundle. Once this was all finished I simply added my scene to a yellow card base.

Thanks for visiting. For some reason I don't get comment notifications to my email now so if I will most likely discontinue commenting back on all of them but I will be sure to check my blog perodically to view them.  But I truly love reading all of them and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the sweet words you leave me. Also if I don't have your email address (Sandra) I cannot send you my new one. Your profile did not include any and you did not respond to my old email either. I don't want to publish either too much on my blog if I don't have to.

Well that's all for today. Nice to be making a card again. Take care everyone.

God bless, Verna

Verna, I'm not getting comments in my e-mail either anymore. It makes it hard.

Your card is absolutely beautiful. [Bunny]

Love the way the scene draws you in. Sorry about your notifications. When I was deciding about where to have my blog it came down to Word Press or Blogger. I only went with Word Press because Gina K was using it and I had created a log in to be able to post to her new site.

Just a fabulous card. Your scene is outstanding and I want to be there.
I got an email from something called Follow it. It is a free program that takes the place of Feedburner. If you are interested I can forward it to you. I have not as yet signed up myself.
