Make your own background papers.

Can you guess from this posts title what our new theme this week  is, over at Sugar Creek Hollow .
 As usual we want to see you using a Shabby Chic, Vintage or Primative style, but we would like you to make your  'Own Backing Papers'.
Please pop over and see what we have been making and get all the details.
Also please welcome our Guest designer Kimberley and visit her here

My backgrounds were made with my favourite well used Script and Rose stamps.
The  base card was  stamped with the Script using Tumbled Glass Distress ink, this colour was also used for shading  the card.
The next layers, I  heat embossed the  roses using a pale lemon embossing powder by Woodware. The script is very feint in the backgrounds.
The main image  is a piece  I made  a few weeks back at the  craft workshop, with Jill .
The stamp if I remember is by Stampendous , we added Frantaage embossing powders and some guilding. This was coloured with chalks.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I appreciate your comments.
