 Hello everyone,

Making backgrounds, Stencils or Freestyle, that is our theme over at As You Like It and oh, boy, have I got a back ground for you..

This is leftover from spraying and it a paper towel, isn't that neat.

So found another piece of cardstock that I sprayed,

and used a dauber and white ink and gave it some spots..

made the paer towl into a panel with cardboard inside it which made it thick and stable,

Gave it some white spots too..

and love it, one of my favourites now this year..

added onion bag and real sun dried starfish..

a sentiment, gold embossed and added onto
 a tiny strip of corrugated card stock..along with bubble beads..

and done, and I love it.

So there we go, make your own background tell us why it is your favourite and you are good to go

We are sponsored by Lawn Fawn with a $25 voucher..

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I'll see you tomorrow..
