The Perfect Backgrounds

Hi everyone and happy Friday! Ready for the weekend?

I wanted to share with you the cards that I made from my brusho backgrounds. I created a video tutorial for you to share this fun and easy technique. You will find the link at the end of my post.

Today I received my dies and stencils from STAMPlorations. It felt like they took forever to get here from the US but that was because I was at the mail box everyday waiting.... So! I had to break them out and have a play as I knew they would be perfect to add to my backgrounds.

Here are my cards - no stamping today. Just watercoloured backgrounds and dies :)

I would like to enter this card into

Cut it up - Watercolour (must use a die as well)
STAMPlorations - Anything Goes using their products

I would like to enter this card over at

I would like to enter this card over at
