Design your own Backng at Craft

Good morning hope you are all keeping well nearly weekend again. Today is Thursday and now it is time for another challenge at CRAFT and I have to tell you I nearly ran for the hill when Jo came up with
MAKE YOUR OWN BACKING PAPER
totally out of my comfort zone but hey when I got to it I kind of enjoyed it.
Well we have another fab set of sponsors for this challenge that have all been very generous

I have used a image from Saturated Canary and have used shades of Blue for my card.
sorry about the dark picture but light is so bad one day i will get a good daylight lamp. I have coloured the image with my promarkers. The sentiment is a whimsy stamp. Ribbon is from my stash. Card is from Papermill. Now my backing paper is made by stamping in various inkpads with a set of very tiny stamps. The paper behind the image is made with distress inks I dab it onto a non stick sheet and then sprayed water and then placed my paper onto it. I then dried my paper with a heat gun. I thought it looked a bit like the rain we have been having lately. Added a blue gem to the sentiment and a few drop gems. 
Well what do you think of my backing paper. Dont forget that the rest of the team has made some fab creations so check them out for more inspiration.
Well thanks for joining me today and having a peep at my little creation. I guess sometimes it is good to be pushed outside your comfort zone.
Hope to see you over at the blog. Catch you tomorrow with our 1st Crafty Catz challenge of the new year and our new gdt jills creation
