Watering Geraniums

Greetings! This card is for a challenge over at The Craft Room Challenge where the theme is to "Stamp Your Own Background." I was drawn to this challenge as I recently gave away nearly all of my background paper and have been trying to create my own backgrounds.  I began by selecting this adorable clip art from Gecko Galz.  For the background, I stamped paint blobs by Crafty Individuals repeatedly with Spun Pink Distress Pink.  To soften the background, I added a bit of Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and a piece of lace. To pull out the red in the geraniums, I added a seam binding bow and painted a white paper flower with Spun Pink, Picked Raspberry and Barn Red Distress Paints purchased at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I'll be adding my card to the Sunday Share at Frilly and Funkie, too.  Thanks for stopping by.  Yvonne

Your card has really made me smile, you can just imagine the little girl having splattered the surface with pink paint going into the garden with her watering can to 'help' there.

Have fun with your own backgrounds they add a whole new dimension to your card making. Thank you for sharing with us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe

Hi Yvonne, this is totally gorgeous. The background is lovely and I like how you've picked out the red with the bow and flower. I've not tried the distress paints as yet, they are on my list though....Thanks for joining in with our "Stamp Your Own Background" challenge at the Craft-Room.
