a little tutorial

Hi friends! I've had a few questions on how I made the background for my card on the Hero Arts blog, so I thought I would do a little photo tutorial. It's a super easy and fun background to make so I hope you enjoy.

Here we go! This is the finished card:
And here's how to make the background. I use the felt pads with the Tim Holtz applicator tool. I think you are supposed to use the foam ones, but I've always been happy with the effect when using the felt pads.

Thanks again for stopping by! I'll see you tomorrow with our next featured stamper. She's got a style all her own and I just know you will LOVE her cards!
