Polkadoodles Week 13 Challenge - No Printed Backing Paper

Good afternoon,

The new challenge at Polkadoodles ask you not to use any printed backing paper, although you can create your own if you wish.

I had fun creating the background for this card. I stamped Hero Arts "Magical" background stamp in Versamark Frost and then sponged over using a Big and Juicy ink pad. Next I stamped an Inkadinkado image using Memento ink.

I stamped the butterfly onto watercolour paper and coloured it with Aquamarkers, then I covered it with Versamark Frost and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I am going to get ready now to go to a Mothers' Day tea at my son's nursery.

Big hugs, Clare xx
