This is my DT card. The challenge is to create your own background. I used a background stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then used 3 different distress inks, spritzed it lightly with water and left it to dry. next was ironing the card between two sheets of scratch paper to melt the embossing powder causing the image to pop quite nicely.

A Facebook post asked the question 'where can you buy freezer paper to use as a mask?' I googled alternatives to freezer paper and found one suggestion to use the outside wrapper of printer paper which is exactly what I did and it worked with no trouble at all. You will notice a slight imperfection on the breast where I obviously did not iron it well enough. My first time water colouring as well and must say it turned out pretty okay although while wet, it looked a bit crappy.
