Whew! only just made it...

Morning all...  It's that time of the week again at MMM ... time for a new challenge. the lovely Fliss is our hostess this week and she would like you to
 Make Your own Background... 
no patterned papers must be used.

I used a Crafters Workshop  template over watercolour paper then spritzed with various Glimmer Mist and Sticky Fingers ink then sprayed with water, left to dry before removing the template. I then adhered it to white card , then onto a Kraft Card base.
 The butterfly is from a Marianne Creatables die, cut from backing paper made with a Tim Holtz mask and DI's. To give a little sparkle I sprayed it with Plasticote gold sparkle. the body is made from a small hatpin and seed beads. It is adhered to a Marianne Craftables doily type die cut
Backing paper made with TH mask and DI's
There are lots of inspiration and different techniques for making backing papers over at MMM. Hope you join us we'd love to see your designs and techniques.
 have a great Monday ... guess what it's sunny here in Crewe at the moment... hope it stays around :)
take care

Brilliant background effect here and such a pretty card. Your sunny photo at the top looks beautiful but I bet the temperature wasn't as high as you might think (camera never lies they say!!)
