5 ways with background dies video tutorial by Kim Dellow

What are your favourite background dies at the moment and how do you use them? Do tell in the comments below, I would love to hear because today I have a video with my five favourite ways to use background dies. The ideas that I am sharing today are perfect for mixed media, art journaling and painting techniques but also card making too. So whilst you are at it, let me know which projects you love to do – mixed media, art journaling, cardmaking or something else? I would really love to know.

So if you are going to tell me which is your favourite background die at the moment then let me tell you mine! I mentioned it in my heart and star shaped cards blog post a month ago, it is the Apple Blossom Hexagon Panel Die from Craft stash. Have you seen it? It’s pretty huge and super versatile.
