Welcome to my latest technique video, this blog and video came about because I shared this card on Facebook and got a lot of requests for a video to explain how I created the background! I live to serve, so here is my video showing how to create this lovely background effect. I call it the Splat Technique!

Splat Technique 1The Splat Technique isn’t new, we all did it as children probably – but it does look great as a background for this card. The sentiment is from the Hostess set Love You Sew and it just matched the background perfectly.

Splat Technique 2The card dimensions are:

  • Elegant Eggplant A4 cardstock cut at 10.5 cm when the short edge is at the top of the trimmer.
  • Turn the card so the long edge is at the top of the trimmer and score at 14.9 cm.
  • Whisper White cardstock cut 10 x 11.5 cm
  • Shimmery White cardstock cut 9.5 cm x 10.75 cm (yes one side is slightly shorter than the mat!)
  • Pacific Point punched using the 6 cm / 2 3/8″ scallop circle punch
  • Whisper White punched using the 4.4 cm / 2″ circle punch

I hope you like the video, if so please leave me a comment and let me know!
