Funky Fairy Challenge


The challenge this week on Funky Fairys is:

make a card/layout using no backing papers whatsoever! All backgrounds must either be stamped, inked, painted or chalked (for example) and any topper or embellishment must also be made using a rubber stamped design/image. The sentiment as well should be stamped and not printed from the computer or a rub-off. The only concession to paper/card that will be made, is for matting and layering purposes only.

I need a card for my BIL's birthday soon, so I used Weathered Wood Distress Ink on the background, and randomly stamped all over, then stamped the image and greeting on another piece of inked card, and matted these on to the main card.

Looks great - can't believe that is not a paper. Just goes to show we spend too much money on papers (well, I speak for myself :-))when we could be creativing lovely stamped backgrounds.
