This is my card for the TeaPot Tuesday challenge at SplitCoastStampers.  For those who are not familiar with this project - we are a group of SCS members who have fun with nonsensical stories but a worthwhile project each week.  This week our recipient is Lynda, aka Hotwheels.  She is a long time member of SplitCoast - using a wheel chair - hence her screen name Hotwheels!  She enjoys doing what she can with cards, but needs assistance in carrying out her card ministry.  So we are creating cards she can use to send to "her kids".  This pre colored digi by Beccy seemed perfect!
I tried a couple of new techniques.  I do not have stencil paste, but  I read that Spackling paste mixed with chalk would work.  Hubby had a rather dried up jar of paste, but I added a bit of water and powdered chalk - created a piece with a blue design.  It seems to be holding up - looks rather like suede or flocking IRL - .see the corners and hearts.  Oh, yes, the bg is inspired by Jenny at Frilly and Funky - but my attempt is far short of hers.  I cut pieces of a number of scraps, then sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

So pleased you were inspired to have a go at creating your background from scraps and your improvisation has led you to produce a lovely (and fun) card. Thank you so much for joining us at Frilly and Funkie. Jenny x

You've done an excellent job on this card Dorothy, and what a lot of work has gone into creating it. Making your own backgrounds and your own texture paste... very impressive and I'm sure it will be very appreciated too.
