Brutus Monroe Hop - New Unity Collaboration Backgrounds

Hello crafty friends! Today for the Brutus Monroe blog hop we're sharing some different background stamps from the new collaboration collection with Unity Stamp Co. 

For my card, I started by heat embossing the background onto some aqua pigment paper with Alabaster embossing powder. I taped the panel down and soaked it with clean water, and dropped the aqua pigments "Rhubarb" and "Yellow Orange" straight from the bottle onto the wet background. I soaked up any giant puddles with the corner of a paper towel and set it aside to dry. Then I painted a scrap of sweets pigment paper with the Rhubarb aqua pigment and dried out with a heat tool. I embossed the sentiment in Alabaster and trimmed it down to a square shape. I also cut a coordinating, slightly larger swear from vellum and adhered them together. I popped the sentiment and vellum squares up with foam tape and mounted the whole thing on an Alabaster card base.

I added some paper flowers to the corner of the sentiment square, and then squeezed two thin lines of glue extending out from the flowers, and sprinkled micro pearls onto it to finish it off. 

Next, hop on over to Berina's blog and see her beautiful card with this same background!
