{Spotlight Project} One Die, Three Backgrounds with Cornelia

Hi, Cornelia here today using one die and 3 different backgrounds.


My supplies:

I cut myself some panels from white card stock and ombre sponged them with Distress Oxide inks.

Die cut the birds with black card stock.

Splattered water onto the purple panel.

Used salt for the second one and sprayed it with water.

Used a stencil for the third one and sponged with the same ink.

I then cut some slightly larger panels from black card stock and choose a grayish brown card stock as my base layer. Added the sentiments, which are all from this wonderful stamp set. I added some sequins to the blue card - I was not so happy with the way the salt turned out - perhaps the wrong salt, but most definitely the wrong card stock - should have used water color paper for it....I also added a generous does of Wink of Stella to the green card and dabbed some Stickles into the center of the flower. Kind of odd, that the card base is the same color, but looks totally different in the pictures...

Remember if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts, hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase.

  1. OMG, Cornelia..I LOVE your DOX's sponged backgrounds and your 3 different techniques on your finished backgrounds. So pretty and perfect for your die cut birds. They are on my wishlist...because of you my friend. I will be using your promo code:-) Hugs

  2. Awesome inspiration - love them all, especially the one with the stencil! And the good news is, I have all of the materials - woo hoo!

  3. Wonderful cards. I am too sick to make cards. Just miserable.

  4. Perfect backgrounds for these silhouettes! I love this die and the stamp set too!

  5. Cool. Quick and easy and stunning. Love these. Hugz

  6. Love that you used three different techniques for the backgrounds. Great vibrant colours and the black silhouette birds look great against them x

  7. There Cornelia goes again...being fabulous. Love all her backgrounds...just luscious.
