Guest Designer - Birgit Johansson

Please say hello and give a warm welcome to our Guest Designer for our Staying in the Background challenge. Birgit Johansson of Cards R Fun was the Design Team's Top Pick for the Stencilmania challenge.

Hello there crafters! I am so delighted to feature in the guest designer post on The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog - It is such an honor!

I live with my family in Sweden. I've loved paper ever since I was a kid, so it's no wonder I've made lots of cards over the years. My style and the materials I worked with have also changed over the years.

For the card I will show you today for the challenge" Stay In The Background" I have used a fairly simple embossing technique that works for almost all styles..

First I stamped leaves and clear embossed them on watercolor paper, then I sponged over Distress inks and stamped more leaves. I also added paint and water splatters.

I stamped the sentiment on vellum paper in black and clear embossed it too. If you are more interested in which products I have used, you are welcome to visit my blog Cards R Fun.

Thanks so much for the opportunity to be a guest designer together with the talented design team over at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog!
