handmade backgrounds for anything goes challenge dt piece

time for another dt piece over at anything goes challenge
and the theme this time is, handmade backgrounds..
this is fab for me as i hardly use patterned papers and love just
playing with inks and paints, stencils and more
to create backgrounds..
so here is mine :

make sure you pop across here for to see all the fab dt makes
and here for lots of crafty goodies.

I started by spritzing my page with these wonderfully vibrant
dylusions sprays in fresh lime and vibrant turquoise..

i then used inks and stencils,( flower stencil..dylusions )
and more inks

adding fab stanpy inky detail using stamps
(doodle parts and basic backgrounds from Dylusions,
and Wendy vecchis art fit for a queen)

why you don't you pop across and add in an entry yourselves..

have a fun and inky day!
