Played around with backgrounds

Hello all.   I wanted to make some water color backgrounds so I pulled out my Brusho Powders and made these backgrounds.  I am thrilled with how they came out.  I still have one more panel left and no idea what I wanna do with it yet, ahh well.....  Anyway here is what I did.  I used a stamp I have had forever from Stampin Up, this perty peacock, don't ya just love her?    The other is a hero arts floral stamp.

Well was just so happy with these I just had to share with y'all....  Thanks for popping by.

Until next time

Hello Peeps.  Happy Sunday Evening to all.  Hope those of you getting the really cold weather are staying warm....  I made a promise to myself that this year in 2017 that I would start sending out more RAK Cards.  So I made 2 today for no other reason but to just let someone know I am thinking of them...  I used the Altenew layering stamps Beautiful Day set.  And I used Tim Holtz distress inks mini's to ink them all up.  All in all I am very happy with them.  No to get them addressed and out in the morning post.  Thanks for popping by and visiting.
