First lesson: Backgrounds, what you can use and how these backgrounds add to your finished work of art.The pictures start at the bottom and go up.
No. 1 ,I used playing cards and added my ATC info back to all of the nine. here is a link to get free backs(they are very nice) http://ewenmeprintables.com/shop/index.php?act=viewDoc&docId=28
No.2 first background- I had some paper I watercolored and this is a piece of it on top of a matching scrapbook paper.
no. 3 -found this somewhere looks like a school primer page -would do well with a back to school theme
no.4-antique page from book with torn paper accents.
No. 5- the written word good for a vintage type card.
no. 6- scrapbook paper and frame
no.7- corner from an old calender
No. 8-stabilo crayons, add water and see how this makes a watercolor.
The next step is distressing or adding antiqueing to your cards, I use Tim holtz distress inks and fluid chalks. A make up sponge works great.
