Stampotique Designers Challenge #188 Favourite Background Technique

Good morning from a rather wet & soggy East Lancashire today! Sunshine and showers! No, just showers!!

I am delighted to be sharing a tag with you that I've created for the brand NEW Stampotique Designers Challenge.

Nellie is our gorgeous hostess this week and she would like you to share with us and use your favourite background technique.

Being a classic Gemini both twins like to have their say, it depends on how I am feeling at the time but one of the first techniques I learnt and one I always go back to is using Distress Inks, water and a non stick craft sheet. BLISS! I love how you get different results each time.

Hope you like my tag...

Someone has been busy with the scissors!!! Doesn't he look.... FaBuLouS!

A beautiful but simple tag using some of the brand new stamps from Stampotique Originals. For the background I used the Fabulous stamp from Carol's Collection along with the gorgeous Romantic Text by France Papillon.

The new girl Penelope is just the BEST! Not sure I trust her with a pair of scissors though!!!

I'm sure her little buddy from the Dog Cube trusts her! ;-))

Thank you for calling and leaving a comment if you get the chance. The Design Team have been very creative sharing their favourite techniques with you. I hope you can join in the fun!

There's also two $30 gift certificates to spend in store on stamps! Swooon!!

 Good Luck for the draw!
