I have a whimsical (and hopefully also encouraging) freebie for you today:
I created this background while playing with two of my Stampin' Up! buddies (thanks Bev and Cathy)! We were experimenting with a technique we saw HERE using distress oxide inks, water and stencils. It was so much fun! This card is actually very, very sparkly in real life, but I couldn't quite get the camera to pick up on that. Once the inking and stenciling was done, I sprayed with with a gorgeous shimmer spray and I really like how it turned out. I created several backgrounds and you may see more of them cropping up here from time to time.
The card base is Daffodil Delight and the first layer is Melon Mambo. I used a couple of leaves and a stamp from this month's Paper Pumpkin kit too!
Thanks for visiting!
