Graph'It Marker Challenge - Backgrounds

It's challenge time over on the Graph'It Marker Blog and this week we want to see your backgrounds. As always there's a fabulous prize of some Graph'It Markers up for grabs and the best bit is you don't even need to use Graph'It Markers.

I've been poorly this week and so needed a really quick make. Let me know what you think of my inspiration piece this week, especially the background technique.

To create the background I scribbled my Graph'It Markers on a piece of acetate and then spritzed it with Mix It Fluid. I picked the acetate up and tilted it to allow the colours to blend. Then before it dried I laid a piece of card over the top and pressed it into the ink. I trimmed the card to size and then stamped the images to create my scene.

Thanks for stopping by today.
