Here’s the reason I purchased Picture Perfect (try saying THAT in a hurry!) - I cannot resist a nice seaside image. This is one of the watercoloured backgrounds I made at Crafty Friday last week. We made lots of background and then chose one to make a card. After we’d finished, one of the ladies mentioned that a starfish would be good on one to use on one of her blue/yellow backgrounds and was silently kicking myself that I hadn’t done any beach-like scenes.
But the next day, after experimenting with my new Picture Perfect stamp set, stamping the starfish in Calypso Coral, I realised it blended perfectly with this Calypso Coral and Elegant Eggplant background. It’s one of the wilder backgrounds I created, and the salt has formed some amazing effects.
I find a plain white card suits these watercolour effects well but I couldn’t resist adding some gentle distressing with a combination of Hardwood (PLEASE don’t retire this stamp!) and Timeless Textures. I finished off with some gold thread and just one White Perfect Accent.
