Make own background

Continuing on with the challenges from my group.  This one we were asked to make our own backgrounds using inks, stencils and stamping.

I started by using Distress Oxide inks, then stenciled over that with a crackle stencil and then stamping a small vine stamp over that.  This was my first time using the Micro Distress Glaze on it. 

This is for a fall masculine birthday so I went with leaves, pine cone and a branch.  The sentiment die cut was placed on a piece of the burlap paper.

Distress Oxides - fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and peeled paint
Prima - Crackle stencil using Walnut stain Distress Oxide
RS Tapestry - Trellis leaf vine peg stamp
All on glossy card stock and went over with Micro Distress Glaze
Spellbinders - Fall Foliage and Cherry Blossom dies (branch)
Die Versions - Celebrate Die on Burlap paper

Thanks so much for stopping by,

A beautiful background for a masculine fall card! Had to look up micro-glaze. Sounds perfect for waterproofing art pieces.
