I enjoy doing a lot of stamping techniques, so I chose to do a technique for the background of my card today. I scribbled alcohol markers on the back of vellum, spritzed the vellum with alcohol and let the colors blend. I cut out the background using a frame die to add to the white card base.

Stamp:  Cosmos Love
Dies:  Stitched Oval - Gina Marie
Candlewick Rectangle - Spellbinders
Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope to see you over at the challenge! Happy Spring!

April, loving the multi colored beautiful background. AND I can relate to the little mouse wanting to smell lovely flowers soon, yet we keep getting snow!! The dies are fun too.

I remember us doing that technique, your blending is so pretty and I can see that little mouse is enjoying that flower, love your bow to top it off!
