I use a nifty technique with pastels and embossing ink to create backgrounds for greeting cards over at Altered Pages this week. I hope you drop by for a visit. I will send you lots of air kisses if you leave a message there.
I used the technique to make this birthday card, which I already gave to someone special. I hope she liked it. Here’s some more backgrounds I made. It’s kind of addicting.
Thank you for stopping by Paper Calliope. May all your days be creative days!
