Papertrey Make It Monday Graduated Backgrounds

Check out this awesome background technique on Nichole's blog over at Papertrey Ink.  It is seriously fun.  Here is my take....

I used the Papertrey strawberry set and Palette ink pads.  My background is made with copics and a piece of scrap paper with a slight pattern to it, which added some interesting texture.  Embellished with a piece of lace, crochet thread and a sequin.  See.....

Of course, I had to make some spare strawberries and made them into this.

See my other sequin.......

  1. Both cards are very pretty. I love the way the first one turned out! Great job on that! Wow that lace is beautiful and nice idea to use the crochet threatd as twine.

  2. Your cards are so pretty!!! I love them both!

  3. Great idea using the pattern with the graduated background. The card is gorgeous!!!
