Okeeee what is the theme this week eh? ... Show us Your Background.......wowwwzerss, you can make whatever you like as long it has to do with the Background and it must be vintage........

This is what I made......

It's all about the BACKGROUNDS isn't it? I had that thought in mind when I made my project for this weeks challenge. So I was thinking of ALL the backgrounds of the butterfly, the bunny and the .........

I had this cool Spool in my stash, that I got from a very special friend.....and I just loved it but did not know what to make I did not have any clue hahhahah but when this theme came on I did.....

I started out with this fabby Easter Bunny and colored it with Distress inks and I covered the minispools with  lace. 

And on top of the little spools, I placed some Easter Eggs LOL....I covered them with Tissue Tape from The Tim.....can you see....even the small flower in front has a little tiny egg inside.....

So I made an Easter Spool. Lots of Vintage PhotoCrackle and Distress Crackle Paint were used. The background of the spool are made with Tissue Tape and the Easter Elements Bigz Dies from The Tim Holtz.

On one side of the Spool I placed this fabby butterfly, it is also from the Easter Elements....and I just love it, made it a double one and the top layer is worked on with Crackle Distress Paint. And on top a Spinner.
Underneith some buttons and lace....

On the other side of the Spool I played around with some roses......can you imagine that these roses are made with wrapping material? hehehe I did not even know I could do it with that, but it worked out great I think.....

 And this is how it looks with all 3 roses .....the background is made with Tissue Tape covered with the white picket fence Crackle Distress Paint. I just love it.......I know I know...I am a Crackleholic LOL....

And here is my whole project for this weeks challenge.....I am very happy with you wanna have fun too then come on over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog and check out the AMAZING creations of my even more AMAZING teamies.......wohooooo
