it's tuesday, and therefore time for a brand new challenge at shopping our stash, this one is called "i made this" and we want to see projects in which you've made your own background! there aren't very many rules for this one, but we would like to see more than just using one simple background stamp. beyond that, you can collage, paint, stencil, stamp creatively, use tape, alter some patterned paper; well, you get the idea, right? lots of options, so i think it's possible i went a bit crazy. but... you know... in a good way, lol!
ok, yeah, so i really did do a little bit of everything on this one! i started with a torn paper collage using bits of notebook paper, sheet music, hindi text and more; then i did quite a bit of grungy stamping, but afterwards i decided it got a little too muddled-looking, so i covered up most of the stamping up with bits of doily, but you can still see a few swirls and a bit of color. then i added flowers fussy-cut from patterned paper and machine stitched around the perimeter just to make extra sure all my layers were permanently attached. this is definitely an ORIGINAL looking card, but i kinda like it! :)
speaking of things to like, there are lots more unique and inspiring ideas from the rest of the design team over at SOS, i'm sure you will enjoy seeing those, so off you go, darlings!
