Home made background paper.


 I realy enjoy making my own background papers,  its amazing the results you can get with a few stamps and an assortment of colours. For this paper I  used four  shades of  my brown distress inks. The  stamps used were Creative expressions - Wild Flowers
The main image which I embossed,  also came from this set. Shading on the edges was done with tea dye distress inks.
I am hoping this card will fit these challenge themes -
 The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge  - Monochromatic
Sugar Creek Hollow -Make your own designer paper
Fashioanable Stamping an exciting new challenge blog, who's first theme is Anything Goes.

Thankyou for stopping by, I realy appreciate your comments.
