Today I was also inspired by another crafter from across the pond. Kaz Hall over at The Little Shabby Shed does some amazing work and posted a great tutorial today. be sure to go watch it. I have posted a video for you too. it shows another version of creating backgrounds that was inspired by Kaz.
So here is the card I made using the marble background I created and some of Tim's goodies. If you want to know how to make the paper, watch the video. I used Denim, Peeled Paint, Eggplant and Spiced Marmalade inks for the background. Happy Birthday Tim. I hope it is as special as you are.
