Mixed media background + new Honey Bears stamp set

Hello crafty friends,

I really like the look of a mixed media background for my cards.  Generally speaking my inspiration usually comes from the stamp image(s) - in this case this new release set from Dare 2B Artzy made me think of a honeycomb pattern.  I used a stencil in a couple of different ways to make the background look like it had lots of layers and dimension.  The best way to explain this process is through video and if you scroll down a bit you will find the video.



Here's a close up view of the colored stamped images - can you see the glaze on the honey dripping out of the pot and off the bear's paw?  If you've been following me for awhile, you probably know that one of my favorite things to do is making unique backgrounds.



Here's my video so you can see the techniques I used to make this card.
