OCC Background Check – Day 3

Now I took the backgrounds that I’ve made earlier and used them to create cards. It is great that Background Check class gives not only technique tips but also design ideas.

I hope you’ll like the cards. I decided to make them really simple because I wanted the backgrounds to stand out.

Black border looks great on bright backgrounds. It makes it look even brighter.

The second card is my favorite. It is very unusual – black color takes the most of the space. But it doesn’t look dark with the accent on floral pattern.

I might have stamped the images on cardstock and masked them off to create a blended background. But I had the images already colored. So I cut them out and glued onto the background just like stickers.

Can’t wait to make more backgrounds and turn them into cards!
