.This week the challenge is: Stamp Your Own Background.
.For this challenge, I created the paper below using CTMH stamps and CTMH Ink.
.Recipe: CTMH CS-White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Petal, Juniper, Creme Brulee, Spring Iris, Lilac Mist & Blush, CTMH SS-Summer Wishes & Serendipity, Versamark, Clear Embossing Powder.
.Now, on to the card I created using my own designer paper:) Card size: 4.25" x 5.5"
I stamped the flower used in the image with Pansy Purple, then clear embossed it, and cut it out. I then attached it with Foam Squares. Of course I had to use one of my new Martha Stewart punches:), and I finished it off with some organdy ribbon and purple rhinestones.
Recipe: CTMH CS-Pansy Purple & White Daisy, CTMH Ink-Pansy Purple, Black & Juniper, CTMH SS-Summer Wishes, Martha Stewart Scroll Lace Edge Punch, Rhinestones, Foam Squares, Organdy Ribbon, Versamark, Clear Embossing Powder, Button.
So, then I got nervous...because ya know, as a Guest DT Member, people will be looking at my creation to inspire them. I thought, "Maybe this card is too busy by using such a big piece of my Background paper...what if people think 'Yuck'?" So, just before I sent it off to Mary, I ran back to my desk and came up with another card. I thought I would let her choose which one was better. I didn't want anyone to be disappointed with the first Guest DT Member, lol!
