Stampin Up - Easy background technique using glycerine and Enjoy Life stamp set

Have you ever struggled creating background? They can be quite tricky and blending is a bit of an art and can take time to master.  I have had many people comment about how easy I make blending a background with sponge daubers and it is sometimes difficult not to get little blobby circles and to now create a smooth blend.

Well I have a solution for you. Glycerine. The glycerine I use is for baking and is Dr Oetker, comes in a little bottle you can buy from most baking or cooking shops and most supermarkets sell it in the baking isle.  It is inexpensive and a little goes a long way.

Watch the video to see just how easy a background comes together with just a few drops of glycerine.





These were the lovely cards I created

Now as crafters we all make mistakes and bloopers and if you watch the video you will see a couple and how I rectified one.

ENJOY LIFE was the stamp set, which is such a great silhouette stamp set andlends itself to background techniques.

STAMPARATUS is the best positioning tool on the market at a great price point, so treat yourself and change the way you stamp forever.
