DCM....Paint the Town...

A huge Congratuations to the girls at DCM!!!! Week 52 of year 2!!! Just how do you keep coming up with such fresh ideas???

Rhi has set this special challenge this week:

"Paint the Town........ red, green, sky blue pink with yellow dots on, or any colour you fancy, with acrylics, H2Os or watercolours, with brushes, sponges or splatters. We don't mind, as long as you use paint on your cards. So have some fun with the DCM and get Painty this week. Leave us a message with a link to your blog and we'll be sure to come and check out your Painted Creations. Go on, celebrate our birthday with us and Paint the Town any way you like!"
It just so happens that I had been playing around with backgrounds last week and this tied in perfectly with this weeks dare. I water spritzed some ordinary copier paper and then dabbed a few different H2O's on it, spritzed again and then just screwed it up into a ball!!!! I then opened it out to let it dry. Where there were creases the mica was more pronounced. I am so pleased
with the effect I am going to 'play' again!!!

The chippie tree was just dabbed with 2 blue versamark pads. I kept it matt to compliment the background. Not too sure about the bow tho!!! The whole thing was mounted onto a cream DL card.
Thank you so much for looking and I would love to read any comments that are left XXX

I love the background you’ve made with the H2O’s Karen, it’s so effective.
The colours look wonderful.

Fab card Karen and the background is fantastic. The chippie tree looks great too and the bow just sets it off....x
