It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's title is I Made This, and we'd like you to make your own background. One restriction: you cannot just stamp a background stamp. Nope. You can use use collage, paint, ink, tape, stamp, stencil, or even alter patterned paper with doodling. There are so many possibilities!
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
This started out as a stray piece of water color paper on which I'd used a stencil and white embossing paste. I took that and put a different stencil over it, then selectively sponged with two colors of ink.
I trimmed it up, put it on a Hero Arts note card, then added the sentiment on a small strip of water color paper (I like my whites to match). The few enamel dots you see hide the most egregious schmears of ink where I wasn't careful enough while sponging.
I think you should play along with us this week. Why not stop by the SOS blog and check out what my teammates have made!
Thanks for stopping by!
