Welcome to another wonderful fortnightly challenge at
We are sponsored by The Stamping Chef
The challenge is to create your own background. This is not something I am comfortable in doing so this had definitely taken me out of my comfort zone. Here is what I did. I started with some plain card stock.
I then stamped my background stamp with Versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder from American Crafts. I'm not sure where the stamp is from at all. I lost the packaging some time ago. After embossing I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
It was still not where I wanted so I added some distressing around the edges with Stampin' Up Ink.
After finishing the background I started in on the image. This is called Dolly Birthday. You can never have enough birthday cards. I colored her with Copic markers and added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the bows on her and some Glossy Accents to the balloons. The ribbon is from Offray, the sentiment is a Stampendous stamp & the papers all came from my stash. The pink tulle is left over from my nieces wedding and I thought it would spark up the image.
I do hope you will stop by and check out all the wonderful inspiration from all the DT at Crafting When We Can. Hope to see you in this week's challenge.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
