Colorful Background and Giveaway Friday Winner

Happy Tuesday!! A few weeks ago, I shared a background technique with Spectrum Noir Markers. Well, I had so much fun, I made some more! :o)  This background features a yellow, some greens and a splash of blue. The featured stars are CT1, DG2, DG3, BT7.  The supporting cast includes rubbing alcohol and a fat straw. 

I liberally spritzed the semi-glossy paper with alcohol then dropped color onto the paper.  I blew the color around with a straw until I was happy with it. NOTE: If it dries too soon, spritz with alcohol again. I set it aside to dry. I just love how the blending naturally occurred with the rich, vibrant colors - and the texture that was created.  You get a lovely surprise every time!  This time, I smooshed a clean piece of card stock on top of a finished one. I liked it.  So I did again it. :o) I like having a variety!
Next for the focal point, I chose one of the foliage images from Sheena's A Little Bit Scenic - Silhouette Garden. I spritzed a very small amount of alcohol onto the rubber and then colored DG3 and BT7 directly onto it and stamped it onto semi-glossy card stock. Be sure to clean your stamp right away with a little bit of alcohol to remove the color and lots of water.  I really dig the vivid colors! 
Try your favorite color combination and let us know what you come up with!

Now! Announcing the winner of this very cut giving away this cute, cute
