MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND PAPER
Here's my project:
Stamps: Uniko Studio - Background Builders Squared, Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, Soft Suede, Baked Brown Sugar, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Bermuda Bay; SU DP - Chocolate Chip
I used the colours from the current Fusion - FUSION#28 challenge - the colours work really well on a masculine themed card. The layout is based on the sketch at this week's Retro Sketches - RS#153 challenge. I had lots of fun creating my own background paper and I had the perfect stamps for it too! I stamped the grid of small squares in four shades of brown covering one side of the card. I added a strip of teal card with a narrow strip of brown striped paper. I finished the front with three geometric square patterns and a simple birthday greeting stamped on the teal panel. On the inside I cut a mat layer of brown striped paper and on the white panel added a greeting and some more little squares at the bottom.
This is second time I've used these lovely warm, rich colours. I think it's because I'm fed up of the cold, cold weather - these colours make me think hot! And yes, it is still snowing here! And still stupid cold! That's all for now - don't forget to check out the projects from my team mates! See you soon.
