The little things do count. . .
Here are the finished cards from the video tutorial above. As you can see, the background of the images are colored and I did it using a sponge dauber and ink. It's an easy way to color your background. It's a "no nonsense" way to shade and color your image background. If you don't know me by now. . .I love "easy". LOL! Card making and rubber stamping shouldn't be complicated.
When I say "the little things do count". . .coloring the background is a little thing that make a whole lot of difference to how your card looks overall. Check out the tutorial and try it out. It's a "basic" technique that a new stamper can use to create color to their backgrounds.
I used YouTube to upload my video tutorial because Blogger's video upload was being a pain in the butt and was giving me a hard time. I have a YouTube account if you are interested in subscribing to my video tutorials. . .Click Here. I think if you subscribe, you'll receive an email from YouTube informing you that I uploaded a video tutorial. I'll be doing more video tutorial in the upcoming year. I'll still do the regular tutorials for other projects but for techniques, the best way to explain them is through the videos.
