Happy Little Stampers April ATC Challenge

It's April. Right? I'm losing track while I am self isolating at home amidst all the craziness out there. I  moved into a new townhouse on the first of March, so now my crafty space is useable! I have been trying to use my time wisely and get organized and make things.

This month's ATC challenge at Happy Little Stampers is to make your own background.  I chose to use Distress Inks and Distress Oxides.  I used oranges, yellow, and pink for my background colors. Some turned out watercolor-y and some I sprayed, which resulted in a more speckled background.

I liked the speckled look and chose the top middle two papers.

I finished my background outlining speckles with Dylusions paint pens and a few splats of black ink.The dragon with the toilet paper: what a perfectly current image! That dragon is guarding his treasure. Since t.p. is such a hot commodity I made this roll sparkle. 

So make your own background, or dig out an unused one from your stash, and join us for the Background challenge at Happy Little Stampers. You have a month to get your ATC made. 

The dragon is Dudley from Whimsy Stamps and the image can be found here.  

That toilet paper sparkles!
