Hello, hello! Today’s project is a response to Moxie Fab World’s Make Your Own Background Paper challenge. For the most part I use patterned paper or dry embossing to make my backgrounds interesting, so this challenge was a refreshing way to get me to think outside the box. I’m really pleased with the resulting card:
I used a whitewashed green piece of core’dinations card stock and stamped the same image several times using VersaMark. I actually stamped the images one at a time and used different colored embossing powders to make the alternating pattern. It was a little time consuming, but I wanted to get the spacing right and also make sure I didn’t mix my powders. I decided also to add the rhinestones for just a little extra something, but next time I’ll probably use glitter glue and get a little more sparkle in there.
So there you go! Feel free to enter your own background paper by following this link ; entries will stop being accepted on February 3rd. Have fun!
