MCT September Release Sneak Peek Day 1 ~ happy fall!

Good morning today is Day 1 of My Creative Time's September Release Sneak Peeks and I get to share with you, Happy Everything stamp and die set!  This is the set you've been waiting for!  Really the name says it all!

I'm going to get right to my card so you have time to see all the creative goodness from DT mates :)

To create the background I did a watercolor smash up...the only way to explain it is, I laid my paper on my watercolor palette and smashed it around then left it to dry.  After it dries I dropped water on it and let dry, then I sprayed it with shimmer and let dry.  Once it was completely dry I stamped my images.  The hardest part is being patient with the drying process.
