Simon Says: Backgrounds!

Over on the Simon Says Stamp'n'Show blog there theme has been 'Backgrounds' and yesterday I finally managed to have a little play with some of my new stash from Ally Pally,
Hurrah!!
I used 'broken china', 'brushed pewter' & 'spiced marmalade' distress paint {YAY I FINALLY HAVE SOME} for my background.
I then cut the paper into 4 and stamped using the fab images from the 'time travellers' set {also new, whoooo lol}
I used my 'picket fence' distress marker to highlight, and then colour the images.
And finished with some dymo punched wording.
I still have A LOT more playing to do so if you'll excuse me that's what i'm gonna do, Ta Ra for now.
Stay Inky

Minxy...I love your Father's Day card! The distress paint background is awesome! I love the combination of the colors you used. I love the chalky matte yet vivid background you achieved. Those stamped gentlemen look awesome spread among the four squares. You've done an expert job of coloring the images with your markers. I love your design! Love the label maker "Happy Father's Day". That really pops. Great card! Thanks for sharing it with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

Such a fabulous design Nicky, the colour palette is light but gives a very dappled and vintagey feel to the card and of course great minds think alike lol with the stamp set. Great job.
