A Bright Hello

Hi!  Today I'm sharing a Flashback card on The Alley Way Stamp's Blog as well as here.  I wanted to make a fun background and lately I had seen a lot of the watercolor with bokeh effect mashed together, so I decided to recreate this look with distress inks, the Seeing Spots background Stamp, and white pigment ink...

I started this card by going over the front panel with various distress inks and blended together.  Next I stamped the Seeing Spots with white pigment ink and let dry.  I then stamped the hello sentiment from the Big Chatter Stamp Set on another panel and trimmed along the bottom edge of it.  I then layered it over my background, and then added some black enamel dots to tie it all in.

I am also entering this into the February Stamping Sensations Challenge: Anything Goes
and in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: No Rules

Thanks so much for stopping by today and happy crafting!!!
