Paper Pretties brings you a new challenge. This weeks challenge #249 is CREATE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND
The featured digi this week is Cadbury. what a chipper rabbit.
For my card I chose to use Sophia always in my heart and for my background I used a technique I saw on kwernerdesignblog using water color paper and ranger ink. swipe choice of colors on a plastic sheet, spritz with water and lay the paper down into the inks. I dried it and then touched it again in various places to give more dimension. I really don't do pastels but I love these colors. I love this look and will be doing more backgrounds. I stamped a lovely tree with black in and cut the image out and gave her a little grass at her feet and the sentiment..kazammm your done. Simple and I love it.
