BACKGROUND MESS..

 Hello everyone,

I hope everyone had a lovely Mothers day, I had a luncheon with my Daughter, son in law and his Mum and our Grandsons  at a local pub and it was beautiful.. then home for a nap which didn't happen because I needed to play with this messy background paper that dried and looked pretty awesome..




This was the paper that I been inking stuff on and splattering stuff on and it just looked too good to throw away...


See, it looks pretty good doesn't it..


so I die cut and layered my Violets dies from Altenew..
and...NO, I didn't like it..they blended into the background too much..


But no stress, I had this paper too..


the dirtier it got the better I liked it..


And I think the Violets were happier too...




So made my panels...


Popped them on...


Added a few more splatters and some pretty gems..


Not too much dimension...


And there we go..the other background was used too, I'll show you that tomorrow..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll leave you with some family pics, don't laugh though..
that's me in pink top with one eye shut, ha ha ha..and my Daughter..

Luv CHRISSYxx

Love how your messy backgrounds worked for your card, I do think your choice of using the yellows worked better with your pretty purple flowers, allows them to pop more :) Sounds like you had a lovely Mother's day!
