Make Your Own Background!!

May 24th 2011
What a great challenge this week at the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog - make your own patterned paper!


I've made my background paper with folk art paints and a credit card plus some rubber stamps!


I have dragged blobs of coloured paint over my cardstock to give the effect you can see. Once the paint was dry I also stamped a floral rubber stamp over the paint and then I put the card through the printer and printed Michelle's beautiful "3 Graces Ballerinas" onto the decorated card. I've layered this onto a base card, added 3 paper roses and some fibres at the fold!


I love to 'play' with paint and it always gives such a great effect.

We would love to see how you make a patterned paper so please share your creations with us this week! But remember you need to use a Michelle Perkett Studio Image to enter!
