Hello! We’re back with some awesome inspiration from Nicky Gilburt for our ‘Splash of Colour’ challenge…
First I ‘splashed’ my colour by laying a square of ink from a pad onto my glass mat and spritzing with a little water. I then used an old small poly bag to pick up the ink and apply it randomly around my cardstock. drying in between colours.
Once I was happy with my end result I stopped dabbing.
I used my Tim Holtz stamping platform to get a really good print from my bowler-hatted man. I did him three times to be sure but two would have been enough, as you can see, careful re-inking gets an incredibly black result!
I also stamped the two past and future images from Ahead of our Time onto spare card and stuck them down with 3D foam.
Love this!!! Brilliant background.. thanks Nicky ♡

The extras in the alphabet set are so great for backgrounds, from the scribbled frames to the punctuation marks. Why not randomly jumble the letters up on your block to create your own unique background too!
