Anything Goes Challenge - Make your own Background

Good Morning

It is a new challenge at Anything Goes Challenge Blog and this fortnight our theme is Make Your Own Background.  I wanted to try resist embossing and also some vellum flowers. I used Watermark Ink and Clear Embossing Power for the base design and used Worn Lipstick and Dusty Concord over the top, with a little Black Soot around the edges.

The butterflies I bought off Esty - they are beautiful and I want to have a go at making some myself.

I then stamped some vellum with a flower stamp, again with Watermark Ink and embossed with Clear Holographic embossing powder and then cut them out.

You can buy all the things to make this sort of tag from the Craft Den so why don't you pop over and see.

Don't forget to drop over to Anything Goes and see the fantastic creations from my team mates.

  10. This is so beautiful Suzie I love it .

    Thank you for your comment I buy a lot of Digi kits from Serif through create and craft TV channel and in each digi kit there are backgrounds, frames and images and sometimes lovely fonts.
    I can use these on any card whether I sell it or give it away.
    I also use freebies from a company called ,
    I only use these on cards I am to give away, and not sell because I don't have a licence to sell their digi images . I THINK ?, but they are freebies after all ,I would have to read all their info, but they have a clause and say that you can buy the licence which would be useful if I sold my cards in the future.
    Hugs Elaine
