Make Your Own Background

Another fortnight has flown by and it's time for another Craft-Room Challenge
Lovely Mervi has chosen the theme Make Your Own Backgroun, she doesn't want to see any designer papers.

Our sponsor for the challenge is The Stamp Man.

For my DT piece I've made a card.

I started with one of my mono prints.

I spritzed some felt tipped spots

I used a stencil with some distress ink and stamped some script [Dina Wakley] with distress ink.
I adhered my background to a card blank and stamped the image and sentiment.
The main image [Dina Wakley] and the sentiment [The Artisic Stamper] were stamped with Versamark and embossed with black powder.
I drew some lines and dots around the edge of the card.

My very talented teamies have made some beautiful samples so why not pop over to the Craft-Room to take a look.
