Mixed Media Collage background.

Today I have a card to share for Little Blue Button Stamps.  I started with making a mixed media background and then used it to make the card.


The background is some water colour paper which I coloured with Derwent Water colour pencils.  I then used some stamps, stencils and inks to make the collage background.   
 I printed the new image called Sally.  I coloured her with Copics and fussy cut her out.  I haven't added a sentiment yet ~ I'll wait till I decide who I'm giving the card to... 

Our new challenge starts soon... be on the lookout for some gorgeous projects from the team.   

I'm sitting writing this while listening to the fireworks our neighbours are letting off.  Last night was Guy Fawkes night but due to very bad weather not many fireworks were let off.  You can only buy fireworks for 4 days from the 2nd Nov till 5th Nov. We didn't get any this year ~ now the kids are not here, it's not worth it.

We had a very noisy Guy Fawkes here, and like you we didn't buy any - there were enough around to look at if we wanted to watch!
