Handmade background papers

Hello all

Because of my neglect of my poor little blog over the last few months I've also not joined in with any challenges either.  I noticed the latest challenge at Simply Less is More is a colour challenge and, because I spent Wednesday morning getting messy with inks and paints, I thought I'd join in.
 This time it's the colour of their banner, yellow, gray and blue.
I began my messiness with marbling using the shaving foam method. I love doing this and I'm always amazed at how easy it is to make such a pretty pattern.

So, a simple design with a circular window.
The butterfly is from memory box.

I've enjoyed getting back into the swing of things, thanks for popping in.

  3. Lynne, this card is just beautiful!

  4. Beautiful marbling! I always admire cards made with this technique and tell myself I should buy some shaving foam to give it a go!! Love the look. Great CAS layout too. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More and I hope to see you playing along in our new OLC Thinking of You Challenge!
