Create your own Background Paper Challenge PWC249

I had many firsts with this card! I did make my background paper as you see with the stamps using my Inkadinkadoo stamping gear, a first for me, ColorBox Harbor and Moss Green Pigment Stamps. I then as a first took a Canvas Card, placed some Geso in the center for texture, embossed a flower, then embossed the leaves. I used water color pencils to apply shading to the leaves, then foiled one side of the canvas to balance the embossed piece at the top of the card. I attached it with a blue brad and popped up with dots for dimension. Instead of cutting out the verse piece, I tore scrap paper, applied distress ink to the edges and stamped the sentiment. I edged the bottom of the card with a shade darker blue (no matchy match for me) and folded it over so it will show on the inside when it is open. The flower piece inside I distressed but also a first for me, I painted with Acrylic paint as it added just a bit more dimension to the flowers! I truly experimented a ton on this card with so many different techniques, I hope it isn't too much, but I really had fun!
