Pile It On! Challenge - Make Your Own Background

We have another fun Pile It On! Challenge starting today...and the theme is:

'Make Your Own Background'

Our sponsor this month is Paper Sweeties:
Prize - a $25 Gift Certificate to the Paper Sweeties store!

I made my background by 'smooshing ' Distress Inks on to watercolour paper. Blues for the sky: Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans. Greens for the grass: Lucky Clover, Mowed Lawn, Cracked Pistachio & Evergreen Bough. I added a couple of layers...drying with my heat gun before adding the second layer, then splattering with a little water. I used my Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside' border dies to cut the grass, then added a cute little mouse ('Daisy' by Whipper Snapper Stamps), which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut out. The clouds were cut using my Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds' dies, and the sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
