Moving Along with the Times - No Designer Papers
Moving Along with the Times, Team B's turn this week and the theme, set by Sue, is No Designer Papers. This means you can make your own background papers by stamping, spraying, sponging or any other technique you like using. You could just use layers of card or leave it CAS with just the image, it's up to you but come along and join us.
I decided to use my purple Cosmic Shimmer mist first of all and after that I stamped a little flower image randomly across the paper. The stamp is by Anita and I've used it loads, it must be the one stamp that I have used regularly and I've had it for years. I used my Promarkers to colour the flowers in shades of purple and did the centres in yellow. I matted this paper on to Crafters Companion purple card. I used my Spellbinder dies on more of the CC card to make the fancy border, the Happy Birthday sentiment nestie and an ornate base for another flower which I'd cut out to use as an embellishment. I asked one of my sons if it would pass muster and he said that it was OK for an old person! I'm sure he loves me really but he does believe in calling a spade a spade. lol
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
