Sorting through my Backgrounds - 2nd post today

This is my 2nd post today, following my latest GDT post for Stampotique, and I'm having a me day finishing off a few DT pieces and some I should be starting. I invariably get side tracked and today has been no exeception. I decided to sort through all my created backgrounds and sort them into techniques ie gelli prints,brusho's, dylusions etc and have sorted them, by type, into drawers so I can find things faster (well that's the idea).
One of those backgrounds caught my eye and I just made a quickly stamped card using it.
This background has been created using Dylusions and Perfect pearl mist pewter on gloss card using the cling film technique. I am not a great lover of gloss card but it gives a fabulous finish using this technique, the fabulous shimmer unfortunately doesn't show on the photo.
Both stamps are Dina Wakley - Lonley Girl
Sentiment - from Handwritten Quotes set.
Here is the little corner of my craftroom that I have put my drawers, so they are at hand I have put them right next to my desk with my other much used items.
Thanks for visiting especially if it's your 2nd visit of the day.
