    Hi Laurie ! Backgrounds can very often be the hardest part of cardmaking for me. It’s why I have so many background stamps & stencils. BUT, I don’t use my stencils like I thought I would. Your tips today have me inspired and are super doable. I’m definitely going to give this a try. (Love your artist’s board!). Thanks again for sharing your ideas! 🙂
