The backgrounds are colour sprays and I have used several stamps to create a collage type background. I used my own stencil for the humming bird created using a graphics package and a threshold layer. The other stencils I created from some shapes from the scrapgirls digital templates. All were printed onto acetate and cut out. I sponged some adirondack through the stencils. The large words used a pen and a standard letter stencil. I edged parts of this in a silver gel pen but that doesn't show up so well on the scans.
