Just a few things on my desk this week! A bit of mess and some backgrounds. I have really been in to making background this last week!
A bit of a closer look.

An almost finished tag, (just needs a few ribbons and a hole punched in the top).

This is the rest of the background from the tag above. I was inspired by this months Craft Stamper, Mixed Media Masterboard by Rachel Jackson (pg 74) to make a background on water colour paper!
This piece is going to be the background for this weeks Journal challenge on UK Stampers. I will blog later, when it is finished!

Another one inspired by Dyan Reavely (but this time I used stamps spritzed with water to stamp with instead of stencils) The white journey and the feathery bits are stamped with white ink.

This one is all stamped with water and water spritzed through sequin waste.
If you want to see more desks or join in go over to see Julia on her wonderful blog!

Your backgrounds look fantastic and they are so useful. Rachel's work is very inspiring and she explains it all so well.
I really miss her blog.

WOW lots of gorgeous backgrounds there. I think that is such a smart way to go about it. Get inky all at once then you can decorate without being covered in ink. Thanks for sharing.
