Mix It Up Challenge - Make Your Own Background

Hello my friends!
A new month means a new challenge over on the Mix It Up Challenge Blog.
Remember, this is a monthly Anything Goes challenge but with a fun twist that you can choose to join in on ... or not!  This month's theme is:
Anything Goes + Make Your Own Background
 I love creating backgrounds with Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks
so that's what I've used for today's card ... hope you like it!!

I used various shades of blue onto watercolor paper then of course used the technique of spritzing water and dabbing dry with a soft cloth for the spotted background.

For this sweet (sad looking) Rover, I've used the Stampers Anonymous - Tim Holtz Collection - 'Crazy Dogs' stamp set.  After stamping and coloring, I fussy cut him so he could be popped out and stand alone.  Don't you just love that face ... lol!

I've die cut a grass panel for him to sit in and my sentiment is from an Impression Obsession stamp set called 'Greetings Galore'. 

I do hope you'll pop over to the Mix It Up Challenge Blog and join in the fun!
You have until 6 PM EST the last day of the month to enter!
I'm so inspired by the rest of our amazing DT 
and I can't wait to be inspired by YOUR project!
