Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge: Water color Background!

Happy Tuesday All!  We have a new Loves Rubberstamps challenge this week and it's a super fun one....Create your own Pattern Paper or Technique Background!!!

Here's my card for some inspiration...

I enjoyed my chance to create another  fun water color background using my distress inks.  It's just so much fun to experiment with all of the pretty colors!  I kept my card very simple and decided to grab some gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers to cluster in the center.  To further embellish, I added some sequins and some clear rhinestones. The sentiment was embossed in white against the background and I really love the way it pops!  

Here is my supply list:
Seedless Preserves - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Shaded Lilac - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Victorian Velvet - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Mono Multi-Liquid Glue - Tombow

Check out the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge blog to get more details and to see the other DT projects!

I hope this gives you some inspiration to create some of your own backgrounds on your cards and projects.  Once you try it, you're going to want  to create a bunch more because they are just so much fun!

Have a wonderful week and thanks for visiting!



  1. Marcy WOW! What a beautiful background! I Love the soft colors and your sweet embellishments... Looks so Girly!

  2. Wow, what a fabulous background, love the colors you used and it's so soft and beautiful with these flowers. Great job.

  3. So pretty, Marcy! Your Distress Ink background with the white embossing is very soft and striking. I have a bunch of sequins but never use them, as I have a hard time gluing them on (I am messy!). Such a great touch on your card! Wishing you a Happy Easter!

  4. The colors you chose for the background are just perfect together...
