Create your own background


Hello and welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz. We would like you to #271 Create Your own Background.  More details available on the blog along with the inspiration created by the design team.

For my DT card -here are the materials and techniques I used.-- A 5.75 card with a 5.5 white card blended with Distress Inks, Salty Ocean, Broken China, Faded Jeans and Chipped Sapphire. A light spray of water, dabbed dry to create a bleached effect. The stamps available with Simply Cardmaking and Papercrafting magazine #207 - Crafter's Companion - Nautical Collection.  All stamps were stamped with Versaclair Bluebell ink.  A white Sakura gel pen to highlight many areas. The ship's main sails have been paper pieced. Stay safe and enjoy the challenge.
