Make your own background

Happy Monday everyone hope you all had a great week-end I know I did we had the oldest 2 Grand children again this week-end (we must be doing something right!) it was lovely we went to Cleethorpes to watch the Parade they have decided to keep running, then we watched a film. On Sunday we mended stuff that they had found broken including a skip and hop that Grace had bought on Saturday, we then baked some cakes for the party at School on the Monday followed by a walk in the woods at the back of the park across the road from my house finished by a yummy Chicken dinner and Strawberry surprise then home. We had just left home when we saw my Daughter coming down the road with the Taylor our littlest Grand son so we had to get back for him as he sleeps every Sunday until tea time Mondays as both Parents work full time.

Now on to our lovely Challenge at OSCC in case you didn't know it's just for fun this week and no Sponsor we just thought it would be fun to see what you came up with by making your own BACKGROUND I was racking my brain to what I could do, do I stamp and glitter or add Micro powders? Do I draw it, Paint it then the light bulb went on lets try that Embossing and Waxing technique I also thought about trying something called triptych so let me know what you think.

For this card I have used:
Kanban Roses from the Hobby House
Spellbinders Fancy Tags
Rangers Distressing ink (on edges of frame and Green DP)
First Edition Paper First Edition - New Leaf and these
Here is where I have been inspired: - Fancy Folds - anything but a square - fancy folds - anything goes - anything but a card - anything goes - Inky Fingers - anything goes - Emboss it - anything goes - anything goes
