Texture effects…..

…….is the theme this week over on TMTA.  The backgrounds for both these atc’s were made the same way, firstly the background colour (which in the case of the blue/green one is oil pastels smudged together with a baby wipe and the orange/yellow one is acrylic paint) then a layer of bond-a-web stuff put over the top and heated. it sticks to the card but bubbles and then the bubbles burst to leave the most lovely texture.
