Arty Girlz Challenge

I've been away from challenges for a whole month; it's so good to be back in my very messy happy room!

This week's Arty Girlz Challenge is to use a handmade background.
I created this one with Ecoline Watercolour Inks (#'s 227, 407, and 411) and the shaving cream technique.

The foliage stamp is from Lazar Studio Werx and the calligraphy sentiment stamp is from Quietfire Design.
The Talens Ecoline Watercolour Inks are also available at Quietfire. I LOVE these inks! They're so versatile, and they last forever!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
