The Greeting Farm Inspiration Day: A Water Color background with Miss Anya Summer!

If you're looking for my Loves Rubberstamps Challenge card, go here!

Hello Friends! It's my Inspiration Day on the TGF blog and  I have a fun card to share!

Here it is...


So you may have noticed that I've been into backgrounds lately!   There are so many techniques out there using your distress inks, glimmers mists, stencils and embossing powders.   I even started water coloring more which is so much fun!   The inspiration for my background came from one of Jennifer McGuire's YT Videos.  If you haven't checked her out, you should because she is amazing!   I used a fun background stamp which I embossed and then added some distress inks and glimmer mist to give it a water color effect.   I just love how it came out and can't wait to make more!   Now, I just need to get myself more background stamps! :)   Oh and the beautiful girl on my card is the adorable Miss Anya Summer!  This was the first time I used this image from the set and she is just so cute!

I hope this card gives you some inspiration to try some new background techniques on your cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
