MIM # 328 Background Shadows

I have a card for the current MIM at the Papertrey Blog showing how to make background shadows on our cards...by Laurie Schmidlin.
This is what I used to make this card:
PTI:  In Bloom
PTI: Scripted

I like this technique a lot and think I will give it another go!
Have a great week my friends...have I told you that I have a special friend coming today to stay with me for a couple of days?  Nancy from Scrapper at Heart and her husband are flying in this morning and staying for a couple of days with me before they meet up with their son and daughter-in-law who live in Seattle.  I am so excited to see her again, we first met a couple of years ago in Seattle.  We met on the Seize the Birthday Challenge, she is our awesome manager who keeps our lives in order!
Anyway I am thrilled to have her with me for a couple of days, the Husbands are going to golf, so we can talk and maybe even get inky!
Hope you have a great day!
Heart Hugs, friends!

  11. Your card is absolutely gorgeous, Colleen! Such a great technique and wonderful with the white spatter. So sorry I haven't been around much lately - it's just the way of summer around here. I'm driving Kate to a leadership camp for a few days, and then we are all heading to Tennessee for a week. Have a great time with Nancy - I know you will!
