Its Tuesday again so that means a brand new challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studios!! This week we have a fabulous theme - 'Make Your Own Background'. I love all things inky so I had loads of fun making this card which features the beautiful 'Guinevere' available from Michelle's Etsy Store
Guinevere is coloured with promarkers and has some red stickles added for a little extra bling. I've distressed the edges and layer her on some red card. I've used a black base card and then added the background I made using cosmic shimmer sprays and glimmer mists.
I love these kind of backgrounds as they are so easy to make and looks so beautiful and shimmery. I sprayed lava red and black gold sprays on some plain white card and then rubbed them together with a plastic bag to blend them .Don't use your fingers or you'll look like you've been killing a pig lol - I know cos i've done it :-)
I dried the background with a heatgun and then stamped a HOTP swirl stamp around the edges and embossed with Firecracker red DP. I added some red/black wired ribbon from my stash and made a couple of twisted ribbon flowers to finish the card off, I wanted to keep the layout pretty simple as I didn't want to cover the background lol.
I'm really pleased with the flowers, if you want to have a go i've used the same method as Lynne uses to make her famous grungepaper roses here. I've loved making these roses over the last few months and thought I'd have a play with some ribbon too.
I'm entering Guinevere in the following challenges:
