Aquatint Background tutorial

Spectrum noir maya isaksson november tutorial watermarked

I shared a tutorial for making the pretty background for this card using AquaTints on the Spectrum Noir blog yesterday. I really love how this card turned out with the bold black in the background and the pretty pink flowers in front. The sentiment by Winnie & Walter is just fit perfect with the flowers. I was so happy when I was done with the card and am happy to share it. For the full tutorial on the background make sure you pop on over to the Spectrum Noir blog. If you haven't visited before you really should. It's full of useful tips and tricks and tutorials and wonderful projects made by the SN team.

If it's crafty I have probably tried it. Or plan to try it tomorrow. I love to be creative in all ways, but I tend to gravitate to making cards, coloring and diecutting. I also have a bad yarn shopping.... ehm... KNITTING... habit. I live in Sweden with my husband, two cute minions (also known as kids) and three dogs. I work from home at a small international development company during the days, and craft while listening to audio books or follow my favourite series at nights and on weekends. I love it when I don't have to leave the house, being an introvert and socially awkward and all. That's why my slippers to shoe ratio is close to 1:1 and I'm not ashamed to admit it ;)
