Background Challenge


Yesterday I found myself with a little time to kill in my old hood so I stopped by my favorite local scrapbook store that I miss going to quite a bit. I checked out their latest shipments from the CHA show and came across some templates. The camera template spoke to me the most and I was up for the challenge of discovering a new tool. I haven't seen a template like this since the 90's when people did this to their walls. This was perfect for jumping into the Background Challenge over at Moxie Fab World.

I broke out my long neglected finger sponge daubers and set to work on a blank piece of white cardstock to see what I could do. I assigned each camera a color to start. After I was happy with the pattern I wanted to try adding a little mist. I have to admit I'm not a huge fan of mists since I get frustrated at the lack of control I have when using them. This mask really helped prevent me from having too heavy a hand on the trigger...its' forgiving. I like the slight shine it added. I also played with sequins and mixing buttons and gems. Overall I'm happy with the cheerful fun card. Now go break out of your comfort zone and give this challenge a try!
 
Stamp from Studio Calico & template is called Picture Perfect.
