I hope that this day will be a good one for you filled with lots of things that make you smile:)
I entered a couple of card challenges last week for the first time in ages and was lucky enough to have my card chosen in the DT's Top 5 picks at Allsorts. I was so thrilled that I've decided to enter this week's challenge too and the theme at Allsorts this week is: 'No Patterned Papers.'
Making my own backgrounds is one of my favourite crafting things to do as the possibilities are just endless.
Here's the card that I've made:
Now I don't know about you but I'm getting just a little fed up of seeing grey skies and rain recently, so I thought that I would cheer up proceedings by opting for some summer sunshine. The main focal image of my card is one of my favourite stamps by Crafty Individuals. Don't those girlfriends look like they're having the time of their lives just splashing carelessly!
I started my background by blending various Distress Inks and some Memento Teal Zeal, and using just a touch of blue Brushos to give that underwater effect. I used a stencil to add some depth and then I used various stamps including Seahorses and shells by 'Sweet Dixie' stamps to continue the seaside theme. The sentiment and seagulls are also by Crafty Individuals.
I hope that this little bit of sunshine will brighten you day x
