What a Surprise

So over at Hiding in my Craft room this week our challenge is.
 Using your most hideous paper!!

 So off to my old papers that I never uses because they are Hideous, mostly from paper packs. So I chose 2 that some what went together and because my daughter said she did not even want them!! LOL

I consider these VERY hideous as I don't use these colours very much and the squares on the yellow paper do nothing for me....BUT you will never guess what happened when I cut, and layered them, I started to really like them together.

I used Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges for the scalloped background,  the black layer was the oblong  scallop cut 1/4 inch bigger as this has no shadow.

Then for the image. This is a C.C. Designs digi stamp Puppy Kiki La Rue available at All That Scraps.

I coloured the image using water coloured pencils and a blending pen.

Then the Sentiment was stamped using the fabulous K Andrew Designs stamp sets Splash-tastic and All About Animals
