Speedy Fox - Background

Happy Saturday!  It's been a busy week and it's not going to slow down any time soon so let's hop right to our challenge, shall we?

This week at Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge we are creating our own stamped backgrounds.  I have to say that Cracked Hello is high on my list as a favorite background stamp.  I stamped the background with Versamark Watermark then heat embossed with white EP.  I achieved the fun color by using TH Distress Markers and water.

 I rescued the pumpkin from the reject bin.  This pumpkin was colored over a year ago for the Autumn Splendor release (but never used) with the "no line" technique!  My pumpkin was fussy cut last year so i cut a layer from mixed media paper, water colored a shadow and popped up the pumpkin and there you have it!

I hope you will stop on by Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge to see the fabulous creations of my teammates and to play along!

Today is the FIRST day of DTGD at Splitcoaststampers!!!  With this card I am playing along with Julie's challenge.  We have 7 fun days ahead, I am hostessing a challenge on Monday and there are prizes up for grabs so I hope to see you there!
