MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND

there are so many ways to make your own backgrounds, using stencils, splattering, gelli plate printing etc
We are showcasing GELATOS made by FABER-CASTELL this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

All the techniques I had in my head needed Gesso and guess what I don't have. So I had to settle for the colouring up the solid stamps from Penny Black Foliage Fancy and misting with water. I then stamped over then with the outline stamp. I also did the same on a separate page so I could cut them out.
I then used on of the ovals from the Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamps Essential Greetings.  Last of all I used the Happy Birthday Die again from Simon Says Stamps but used the Happy. I then blended some brown inks round the card so the white wasn't so stark.



So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out
