happiest birthday wishes - Bugaboo Free Friday

Friday March 16, 2018
Friday at Bugaboo is Free Friday..
Check out the design teams creations over at Catch the bug..
This image is called Cute Troll..  Now how remembers having one or many of these cute toys in their house???.. My daughter in the 70's collected them.. She had quite a few and all were different. So I thought back to hers and colored my image with copics..  I then cut her out using a Spellbinder die. For the background  I took a piece of dry wall mesh and Ranger ink and added this to the background. I added the image and then used a Stampin up sentiment. 
this is a photo of what the dry wall mesh looks like. It comes on a spool like tape. the back of it is a little tacky which is awesome when you're using it as a stencil. I just cut about a 6 inch strip and placed it on top of the spool so you can see behind it.. I love that this is a pretty cheap stencil option.

I REALLY like this background technique! And your troll is adorable - I never did collect these as a kid, but I like them more now with my girls liking the troll movie.
