Make Your Own Background - Kraftin' Kimmie Celebration weekend Challenge #1

Goooood Day sweet crafting friends!
This weekend we have some really fun challenges 
in the Kraftin' Kimmie Friends Facebook Group
to celebrate Kimmie's birthday and reaching more than 
6,000 followers in the group! We have a series of
challenges for you to participate in. You have all
week to enter and there's prize opportunities!

The first challenge is to make your own background. 
I usually default to patterned papers (I have an embarrassingly
large amount of that stashed in my craft space), but
lately I've been having a lot of fun using stencils instead.

My first card to share with you today uses the 
HAPPY HEARTS STENCIL with the inspiring
stamp sets YOU ARE SUPER and 
HAPPY THOUGHTS (all from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps)
I started with a watercolor wash on the base
with two different colors.  After that dried 
I used some Bobunny glitter paste with the
stencil.  A little different style from my
usual but I'm really happy with how it turned out!

This second card was made using Brusho Crystals
on a watercolor paper panel (yellow, orange and red)
and again the YOU ARE SUPER stamp set.

Both of these cards are going to two amazing women
who have or are fighting against breast cancer.  I'm truly
in awe of their strength and positive attitudes.
