Here is the third of my mixed media background cards, if you haven't see the others they can be seen here and here.
This background started as a bister mop up over which I applied crackle paint through a stencil and let it dry.
The colours weren't vibrant enough for what I wanted to I took a couple of dylusions misters and gave a couple of fairly quick sprays.
Still not happy with it I then brayered over a little white gesso lightly so that it mostly caught the raised areas, but you can see it picked up some of the coloured inks and created an effect I really quite liked. I gave it a coat of matte medium to seal it.
To finish off I made up one of Tim's take away coffee cups, added some collage bits and die-cut the friends celebrate words.
All I had to do then was put it all together.
Again I know just the person for this card.
Have a great week.
Have a great week.

I really love the background of this one Brenda ....wouldn't mind a coffee right now either!
Love the background,I have never thought of using crackle paint through a stencil...Just gorgeous.xxx
The background turned out great, the brayered gesso made all the difference! Love how you finished it too, great use of that coffee die!
I really like the brighter colours on your background here Brenda together with the stenciled crackle, and as Astrid says the gesso gives it more interest too, another lovely piece. Mo x
