Hello, my friends! I am playing along with the Make Your Own Background Paper in the Moxie Fab World Challenge today and I am LOVING IT! You see, I don't often use backgrounds, nevermind make my own, so this challenge was super fun!
To create my background, I pulled a thick piece of Canva-Board paper (Canson) and stamped it with the lid to a tube of gum. What gum comes in a tube, you ask? Project 7 Gum comes in a tube. And helps feed people. You should buy some. Just sayin'. The lid just so happens to be PERFECT for creating a rough edged stamped circle on canva-board! YAY! I then added a bit of color (three different blues) to each circle with watercolor crayons (Stampin' Up!). A waterbrush took care of the rest! I kinda love this background! It's calm and happy! YAY!
Then, to finish the card, I used a Bazzill Bling cardstock base and a black panel so the dots would really stand out. I added a couple of strips of happy washi tape and, of course, a fabulous Bossy Joscie flair sentiment... because Bossy Joscie flair is awesome. You should probably buy some of that, too. Just sayin'.
So... on that note... it looks like you have some shopping to do... HA! No, but for reals, thanks for stopping by and I love your comments, so leave one so I can come visit your blog and leave you a comment and then you can visit mine and leave me a comment and then we can just keep doing that and doing that and then we will be friends. *Sigh.*
I need a nap. Just sayin'.
