Creating Backgrounds

 Hello Everyone
I've been having some fun creating my card backgrounds using templates, stamps, and stencils and really loving the effect.

For this one I used the Crafters Workshop Cherry Blossom 6 x 6 Template and some gold ink.

For the next one I used two different stamps to create the background  the dress form is from the Ginak Design Springtime Silhouettes stamp set and the  xoxo is from Whimsy Stamps Mini Love Tickets.
All the dies I used are available at FATCATS Card Corner
The flowers were made with the Die-namics Royal Rose Die no longer available at FATCATS
And the stamp I used is also from Marianne Design and is the Sweethearts set of 2 Nostalgic cling stamp set.
Best Wishes is a Elizabeth Craft Wording Die

This one that I made for one of my Brothers in law was also a Crafters Workshop 6 x 6 Template.
The tree is Memory Box Grand Oak Tree 

The frog was a colouring page I downloaded from the Internet and coloured with copics.
My background is a Fiskars Texture Plate that I simply inked up with a Distress ink pad and pressed to the card stock, (just like stamping).
A few crookedly placed eyelets on a bit of hessian with ribbon threaded through.

This last one is an EZ Cut embossing plate which I used as a stencil with Seedless  preserves Distress ink and a sponge dauber.
The center is a button with the shank cut of.

 Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog
