Make your own Background...

Our Challenge at Speedy Fox and Friends is to sponge over a die cut negative to create your background. I have used a Spellbinder Label  21 for my background. Using Tim Holtz green lavender and blue inks I sponged them on over the negative shape. Then using The Dogwood Flower image I heat embossed it. A little dyed ribbon and stitching, some sparkles and viola a quick card!



I did a second one with a bit of a twist. I just laid the Spellbinder Label 20 die down sponged the red and green inks then used red to sponge on the outside of the die just leaving the outline. Heat embossed one of the Christmas Cardinal images, matted and stitched it all together! The sentiment was from from the same set.
