Hello! I hope you are enjoying a great weekend!
It's time for Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge and this week's challenge is a 9 Square background! I have a funny story to go along with this card but first let me tell you how the background was created. Using water color paper, I heat embossed the background stamp from Cracked Hello then water colored the background using TH Distress Markers. The sentiment is from Glad Glads.
Funny story: After my background layer dried, I cut it up...........ummmmm......NOT a great idea. I should have marked the back because once I had it all cut up it became the worst sort of puzzle to put together again! I probably could have made 3 more backgrounds in the time it took me to figure out how the "puzzle" went back together but I am a stubborn thing and I wasn't gong to let my background go to waste! Honestly, I am not sure anyone would have been able to tell if I had not gotten it back together perfectly, the cracked bg is pretty forgiving but I couldn't rest until I had it right!
Now that I have given you a crafting tip and chuckle with my true tale how about checking out Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge blog to see my teammate's beautiful designs and you can find out how to enter your creation this week!
I am playing along with Simon Says Stamp Challenge to create a card that makes me think of summer so I went with butterflies!
I am also playing along with Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes.
