Backgrounds Galore

Good morning to you all. Here we are the 21st of May already.....just where does the time go????
So that means that there is a new challenge over on the IndigoBlu blog....
This month, Kay has chosen Backgrounds Galore for the theme....
Oh, what can I say....so many background stamps to choose from....and you all know how I love to make my own backgrounds....

                                
 
This is my Design Team card, I used the Take Flight Stamp with Rich Cocoa Memento ink and ProMarkers for the main image....
The background started as the reverse side of Centura Pearl card with Distress inks randomly blended in...I used, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Spiced Marmalade....then spritzed with a little water....
Then the fun began and I just played with various other Distress inks and started randomly stamping my background ...

                                  
 
DI's, Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Frayed Burlap and Aged Mahogany...
Stamps, Script background, Crackle background, Square Peg Round Hole and the Splodge from the Ledger background...

                               
 
Ribbon, some fancy twine and job done....
I do hope this inspires you to enter our challenge, as me and the other IndigoBlu Belles love to see what you create and remember you could win a fantastic prize....
That's enough from me today, I have a long overdue date with my ironing board.....Oh joy, lucky me! Jo. X
