One layer card with a screen print style background

I've been so impressed with the watercolour background image from Stampin' Up's Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set and have been trying out different ways of using it. I'm excited about the fun technique on today's card - come and see:

Do you like this screen print-style background? I used markers to create it, colouring one half of the stamp with Wild Wasabi ink and the other half in Soft Sky before huffing on it and stamping.

You get to see the fab texture of the stamp in this close up - I love it to bits! I stamped the flowers from Cottage Greetings over the top then reached for my markers to colour in the flowers and doodle some grass.

The card was finished with this gorgeous 'thanks', also from Cottage Greetings, and a single candy dot on the tallest flower. All done!

If anyone is wondering how Eva pup is getting on, she's 10 months old now. Her puppy chewing days seem to be over so I bought her a nice, soft bed. She was very excited when she saw it. For the first couple of days she alternated between ignoring it, having a rough and tumble with it and trying to make puppies with it! I decided to try hiding some prawns in it and you'll be glad to know peace has been restored!

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again on Tuesday :)
