Alrighty then :)

Eeeepers! This Bank Holiday Malarky has me all discombobulated. And you know how I don't need much of an excuse to say that! But, I've been out of sorts all day, I don't know what day it is. I should have posted this earlier today. My bad!

Have you seen the  fab new Make it Crafty Clean and Simple Challenge? Of course you have. Oh yes. It’s all about the Backgrounds. Which is perfect, as, you may remember, I coloured Mushroom House here, not so long ago. I had it on a card I hated.

So, I pulled it off and decided to have a play with a couple of Copic Re-Inkers, some glossy cardstock and a craft mat. After much smooshing around, and I kid you not when I say my finger nails are still green, this is what I ended up with! Much better.

Copics Used...
Mushroom House; E41, E42, E43, W5, W7, Windows; BG70, B91, Pebbles; W1, W3, W5, Foliage; YG03, YG17, YG67, Y23, YR23 YR27, E07, Ground; E30, E31, W5, G82, G85, G99, Wood; E33, E39, E07, Mushroom Spots; W0, W1, W3, Mushroom Roof; RV10, R81, R83, R85, R39, W7, Background; YG03, B91, R81

There was nowt wrong with the easel design....buuuuut... this inky background is super stunning :-)

Especially with some sequins thrown on there too - gotta love some sparkle :-)

Oh, and I think 'discombobulated' is one of my favourite words ever...not often I get to use it...and apparently the spell checker on blogger doesn't know it - lol!

Big hugs, Kat xx

Love the background! I have a hard time using my easel cards so I can't really blame you even though yours was gorgeous! This is a fun remake.
