Make Your Own Background

This week’s challenge at Tilda and Friends is to make your own background for your ATC. For me, this meant a chance to mess about with inks and stamps!  I made a rather ‘grungy’ background by ‘smooshing’ some chalk inkpads onto some yellow lined paper.  I used an Autumn Leaves scroll stamp on the corners, using a pink, then black, inkpad. Then I used a floral stamp, which was a freebie from a scrapping magazine, to stamp all over my ATC very gently, so that it would fade into the background.  The studious Tilda was coloured with Promarkers, and added to the ATC with some foam squares to give some dimension.  The fibre embellishment and card button are from my stash.  Do check out the Tilda and Friends blog to see what the rest of the DT have made with this challenge, and then why not have a go yourself?!
