Creating Your Own Background with Scrapbook Blessings Design Club Challenge

It's that time of the month where Scrapbook Blessings is setting up a challenge for "Create Your Own Background". 

The Design Team is using BugaBoo Stamps for their projects as they are the sponsor for this challenge with one lucky winner winning 7 stamps of their choice!!! For my stamp, I chose Ava Swing as I love kitties and I have always loved going to the playground and swinging even as an adult!!!

  • card was made using DCWV The Carnival Stack was used for the actual card cut 6 x 12 inch and then scored in half using Martha Stewart Scoreboard
  • Colorbok Pattern French Prep Pack was used for the background and cut 5.75 x 5.75 inches
  • Ava Swing was colored using Spectrum Noir Markers, Prisma Colored pencils and gel pens for accents
  • *** note as to the cat to give her that "calico" look, I added splotches of color using my Prisma Colored Pencils with a dab here and a dab there and then smudging using chalk which I think gives kitty a kewl look and looks more like my "Patches"
  • sentiment "Spring makes everything young again" is from Create with TLC. If you're not already a "follower" of her blog, this is something as a "must" on your "to do list" as she offers on a daily basis phenomenal freebies which the above sentiment is just a sample of what she offers!
  • tree was cut using brown Recollections cardstock and green scraps for the leaves which was then chalked around the edges using Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge cut at 6-inches
  • grass was cut using green Recollections cardstock which was then chalked around the edges using Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge cut at 1.25-inches
  • of course, I made my very own action wobble to add more dimension to my card along with movement - another trick to take away from that "homemade" look and make people wonder "however did she do that?"
Creating your own background is a lot of fun!!!!! It adds more dimension to your cards along with making it more professional and takes away from that "homemade" look!

God Bless and thanks for stopping by today. Easter Blessings! I appreciate and love reading your comments . . is your comment the next one I read???
