WHM #126 Creating Custom Background paper

Today, I am entering my first challenge of the year over at Inspired by Stamping. It is hard getting back into the swing after the holidays and all the Christmas cards I had to make. But if you want to play along have a look here:

              What fun getting my water colour paper out again from the depths of my cupboard and having a go. This is my creation using all IBS stamps.
 The stamps used were from the following sets:
Delicate Doilies II, Spring Lilacs, Fancy labels 18 and the sentiment is from A lovely Birthday.
Staedtler Aquarell pencils spritzed with water and painted over with an aqua brush formed the basis of the background. I used Memento Inks in Toffee Crunch and Morroco to stamp the images and the butterfly was embossed with Ranger 'Seaform' embossing ink so that it wasn't brilliant white.  

I am off to do another card,
                                  Hope you are having a creative day,
