DieCut Background

One of the girls in my cardmaking group was using a background die in a lot of neat ways and I just loved her ideas, well she sent me 3 of the cut outs so I could try using them in different ways, well mine isn't nearly creative like hers but she hadn't colored hers they were all one color so since she sent me white ones I was able to color one using my Spectrum Aqua markers and of course had to add some liquid pearls and mini dots that I colored with the markers.



Sizzix -- Brenda Walton Design Background die colored w/spectrum Aqua markers
Dienamics -- Cross -stitch rectangles die
Paper Smooches -- Happy Birthday stamp sentiment
Liquid Pearls -- Mint Green and Lemon Yellow
Candi Minis -- colored w/marker

Hope your having a great week so far, we are getting more rain today but then after that it looks like we may have a dry spell for awhile, looks like I will have to hand water my garden and flower planters for awhile.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by!!

Wow Connie, this one is just beautiful! I wish I knew how to do this!!!! It looks very time consuming but boy the end results are always beautiful! It's very warm here in NH and no rain to speak of in sight. Took a while but it's so nice now that the warm weather has arrived. Enjoy the rest of the week.
