Of course (...) I ended up with plenty of aqua and green leftovers... I didn't want to go backing-shopping, and I had some nice white cotton sheets of the right size for backing. But even little 9 year old girls will get white things grubby, so with the help of mum I dyed the sheet (and my hands) aqua!
Take some aqua procion dye, a large microwave and a large plastic container as well as some Soda Ash (I used the instructions from LuAnn Kessi which I had blogged about here) and your white sheet becomes an aqua backing:

|- oh yes, you can get blue hands, too, if you're not diligent about wearing gloves lol|
