Here's some easy ideas to get you started!

This first sample is a one-layer card put together using 3 of the backgrounds from Behind the Scenes and Meagan from Relish Reading.  To create this style of card, make a reverse oval mask and stamp your main image.  Use the discarded cut oval as a mask for the rest of the card.  I attached it with repositionable TOMBO.  I then masked the right half of the card and lightly added Wild Honey distress ink and overstamped with the Handwriting background.  I then masked the left side and the bottom right corner and did some direct to paper with my distress ink and then overstamped with sequin waste.  From here, I masked the upper right corner and exposed the lower right corner.  I dabbed on some distress ink with a sponge and overstamped with the Handwritten Music background.  After removing all the masks, I colored Meagan in with copic markers and added "Imagination" also from Relish Reading.

This example is a super easy card. Just grab all your scraps and have some fun! I've had these bits of coordinating paper for ages and I thought Midge would look terrific in turquoise!  She is so easy to color!  Her stylish look lends itself to so many different looks!

You can also go for a texture-based background. For this card, I used a distress ink / alcohol ink background for my Cosmos blossom. To add some feeling of texture, I added some torn cardboard, handmade paper and a raffia bow. I loved the rustic feel of these pieces together!
