Just a short post today to share a card I have made for the new challenge today at Country View Crafts. Sue has chosen the theme and it's a good one - to make your own background.
My background started with some torn book pages stuck to some card with gesso. Once dry I added some archival ink through a layering stencil followed by some texture paste through a different stencil. Once dry I used various blue / purple distress paints and a baby wipe to add colour.
I cut the background piece to size, distressed the edges and added a little more colour to highlight.
A few flowers and the sentiment completed my card.
This is a great challenge to play along with - so much scope to be creative! Be back at the end of the month with another project for this theme. No idea what it will be yet though!
