I think October was lime with a touch of pink. My backgrounds are both made with ink sprays. I am still using on old Dylusions lime spray with mica in it which is very vibrant. On one side I used and alphabet stencil and on the other I spritzed my craft mat with ink and water and squished the paper around in the resulting puddle.
The little birds were stamped onto some remnants of Blonde Moments paper and cut out. The stamp is a Karantha one.
It looks as though there was some splattering going on too - I think there was an article in Craft Stamper around then using spatter techniques.
