Allsorts Challenge ~ Create Your Own Background

The optional theme of the Allsorts Challenge this week is 'Create Your Own Background.

For the background I used a Stamp Addicts 'Beaded Curtain' stamp, stamped with Versafine Clair 'Morning Mist'.  I coloured a few of the circles with a pink Promarker.  I die cut the Poppystamps 'Small Tilda Swirl' in pink and grey and attached  them together, before layering on grey and white Memory Box 'Stitched Circle Layers' mats.  I added a punched flower to the middle with a tiny, pale grey pearl in the centre.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Stampin' Up 'Best Year' set, stamped using the same grey ink pad as the background.  I added two pale grey pearls to the pink panel.

Our generous sponsors this month are OakwoodAALL and CreateStamp AddictsRuth Hamilton DesignAldridge Crafts


Please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge to see all the wonderful cards the DT have made.

  1. Thought I recognised that background Liz, now I know why! Pretty choice of colours as the grey gives a much softer look that black.
