Well. we have had a couple of amazing days here in southwestern ontario, weather wise that is!! I am so glad to see the sun. Spring and fall are my favorite seasons.
I hope you are all having some great weather too!!
This is my card for the HHC #22. This weeks challenge is "No Patterned Paper".
I decided to make my own background paper, so off I went to see my friend Theresa's blog. I remembered she had a fab tutorial on how to make a grid background by sponging with ink. Well for any of you who don't know Theresa....she is the "Queen" of backgrounds, you should pop on over and take a look, her cards are just amazing!!
I started out trying to explain how to do the background, but it was turning into a novel, so you will be better off to go see Theresa's tutorial. LOL!!
I embossed the image with black and painted his hat and jacket with icicle H2o's. The rest of the image has been painted with Tombows. I cut him out and layered him on my nestabilities ovals, the white oval I used my CB swiss dot folder. I used a black glaze pen for the dots around the edges of the background and on the white oval embossed dots. The flowers were made with a punch. Of course I added some stickles too!
I hope you like it and Thanks so much for stopping by....
