One of my all-time favourite backgrounds has always been 'Soft Swirls". The funky swirly style just goes with so many of my fave sets... here it is paired with my beloved 'Espress Yourself". I used the Crystal Effects again like in the last card, only this time I used it over the mugs to create a shiny, shellack-ed appearance.
Next on the list of backgrounds I'll miss is "By Definition". I've used this puppy a zillion times and still come back for more. With a background that uses this much detail, my favourite way of using them has always been to ink up the stamp, lay it on its wooden side (rubber up), and then lay my cardstock on top & CAREFULLY run a dry brayer over top to get a crisp & clean impression.
Gonna...(sniff)... miss you guys!
