BLACKBIRD

The challenge for Simon Says Stamp and Show for this week is handmade backgrounds.


Just getting this in under the wire since the challenge ends at midnight tonight.  My background was made with distress inks, flicked with water and stamped with swirls.  After stamping the images with archival ink, the white dots were added for more accent.

Love making backgrounds!
