Good morning blogger friends...
I'm back today with my DT post for Anything Goes and this fortnight our challenge is to
make your own background paper.
Well I had an image of what I was going to create and in the end it was nothing like it!
I started off thinking I was going to make a tag and use an old Acey Deucey image - a bit kind of altered art. It just wasn't turning out to be anything like I imagined and just wasn't right somehow, so it ended up in the bin!
In the end I made a card using Tiddly Inks Alison Witch.
I started again by making the background paper. First I applied Vintage Photo ink directly from the ink pad onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water. Then I dabbed my paper on top and then used a heat gun to set it before applying the Brick Red in the same way. I tried a little Dylusions Teal spray on a separate piece of paper, but it accidentally went on my background too. I quite liked the effect so that's how it's stayed.
Alison Witch has been coloured in my usual Copics.
Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11
Hat & Dress : W7, W5, W3,W1, W0, W00
Hair : E18, E15, YR07, E07, YR04, YR000
Red : R59, R29, R46, R22
I finished off my card using some flowers from WOC, a bow with a lovely Rhinestone crystal from The Hobby House and the flourish is garden branch from Marianne Creatables.
I've never made my own background before and I must confess it stressed me out a bit because I'm not familiar with the techniques. It certainly was a challenge but I'm pleased with the results.
Hope you'll join us. I can't wait to see what you make and hopefully learn from some experts!
Remember if you're short of crafting goodies do have a look at Craft Den's website, Lynne has been adding lots more to the site.
