Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge

Today our challenge is to create a background with inks,stencil and water.
You will find the tutorial HERE for the Challenge. I used Tim Holtz
weathered wood, dusty concord and pine needles inks for the color. 
Then. using a  Balzer Design Stencil,  the Mini Swirly Garden,
 I spritzed the water over it and dabbed. It made a nice quiet design.
 I then stamped the flower from the Hydrangea Set and water colored it.
 The sentiment is from the Ivy and Blossoms Set.The little bottom
border was cut with a Stampin Up die .All was stitched onto the
 aqua base, which by the way was a big chore!!
Have you ever tried to sew backwards?? My sewing
machine is joining the ever growing menagerie of malfunctioning stuff around here
It wont go forward it will only go backwards, kinda crazy 
but hey I just went with it and thats why it looks a little wonky LOL!!. 
This is an easy technique that gives
 a great variety of results depending on color and stencils.
 Check out my teammates lovely creations!

Don't think I've ever heard of a sewing machine just going backwards! LOL! At least it's going though - and the stitching looks fabulous.
