My Challenge

The stamp group I am in is having their week of challenges once again and this is the challenge I put up for everyone to try.

Make your own background, no using designer paper and then stamp onto a piece of acetate or transparency that is the same size as your background.  I used Stazon ink onto a transparency, attached it to my background with brads.  The background was embossed with an embossing folder and then added paints and rubbed in with my fingers to blend.


Paper Studio -- Silkscreen embossing folder
Distress Paints -- Spun sugar, mustard seed
Adirondack -- Lettuce paint
Jenni Bowlin -- Lemon drops paint
Inkadinkado -- Garden flowers stamp set
Brads
Paper studio -- Enamel dots

Here is the tutorial for this challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by today, Hope your enjoying a nice weekend, we are enjoying some nice warm weather!

Love the black silhouette images over the pretty background. I just got a bunch of transparencies from a friend... would be great for something like this.

A brilliant challenge, Connie! Your background looks so pretty with the embossing and blended colors. Then the stamping on acetate gives it a magical touch. Makes a person wonder "how'd she do that?".
