How to create a colored background with texture? (In CSS HTML)

background-color:#CC2738 How do i add texture on top of this color?

1 Answer

Hey Nick!

Sounds like you're trying to use a background shorthand property to add a texture, get rid of the word "-color" from the property in order to use the background shorthand property. Below is the anatomy of the background shorthand property for you to reference :)

background: #color url('image') repeat/no-repeat fixed position;

Hope that helps!
