Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

Wednesday, July 25, 2012



On my background piece I used a SAF technique that Nichole showed us for creating a tie-dye effect.  After doing that, I stamped and heat embossed leaf images and spritzed with a sparkle spray!  Love the effect.  I covered most of it up, but it does add depth to the background that I really like.


Enjoy the Hop!
