One of those Moments..............

Hi, at the moment there are quite a few challenges around on creating your own backgrounds........which got me thinking and I had one of those moments when everything fell into place - this doesn't  happen very often...........................


I used up a couple of scrap pieces to create this card.  For the background I used a piece of diecut cardstock and then stamped it with acrylic paint (Aqua) then used distress inks, layered it twice onto the orange cardstock.  Fussy cut the ladies and stamped the words.

Products used:  RLB cardstock, wrapping paper from Past Times (ladies), Paint Dabber, Distress Inks.
Stamps by:  BL Designs and Scrolls Work Stamps.

Thought the effect was quite nice and it was so much fun playing around. Am entering this card into the Rogue Redhead Designs challenge - use a Stamped Background.

Hope you are all having a fun and a creative week.  Take care of yourselves, Hugs Annette x
