Experimenting with backgrounds

When trying to create my retro/vintage styled postcard, I tried different background techniques to see what would fit the retro them itself and down below are some examples of trying the different techniques. For the retro/vintage theme, i think bright colours would be ideal as it sets the mood for the main retro design in front and this is because if you have it too dark then the main design doesn’t stand out and it won’t look good but then if you have it too light then it just won’t look as good although it doesn’t make the initial design stand out more. Also i tried different colours for example blue and it didn’t suit the retro theme so i think that light colours like orange, yellow, green and light red would be perfect for this style as most of the designs back in the 1900s were mostly red.
