Messy Quirky Challenge Reminder, make your own backing papers.

This is just a Quirky reminder about our Quirky messy challenge going on right now for another week.  We want you to make your own backing papers, so, no bought ones to be used, you can make your own any way you like, use paints, inks, whatever!
 I've use paint this time. I splodged lots of blue and white acrylic paint onto some thick paper. Stuck on a few stars, so that when I peeled them off you'd still be seeing stars! 
When it was dry  I covered it with some matt shimmery acrylic varnish. It's donkeys years old. Once that was all dry I scanned it in to my computer, so I have it forever. Then, first I cut the painted sheet  to fit the card, then using the scanned in paint paper I added  this image from Squigglefly over it. I even thought it was a girl but it's called Artist Boy  even though there's a heart on his pocket... anyway, he seems to be the other way round in the shop, I did turn him into a PNG, so I could place him over the paper, but I'm sure I didn't flip him as well! (But you know me, half the time I have no idea what I'm doing!) 
Once I'd printed it out, I coloured the digi with ProMarkers, (Copic on his skin) added the border, ribbon, some gems and silver candi. Lastly added the word dream using peel-offs. So I have a mixture of the real paint and a copy of it fixed to my card. I also punched out a few more stars too. Busy day tomorrow so look out for some more posts! Thanks for stopping by... hope to add this into some
