The challenge over at Stampotique designers challenge is to create your own background using a household object! Well this got my creative juices aflowing and off I went around the house grabbing all sorts of bits n bobs... and covering them in all sorts of ink and paints. I have a cool.stash of backgrounds now awaiting their day to become a card but this one is my favourite.
I used a medicine popper, storage thimngumy to created these circles.
I applied distress paint in fired brick, then seedless preserves and then I misted with water... love this look, messy and not regimented but more so then I would.get doing this freehand.
I then stamped the awesome New stampotique cake stamp, masked it and stamped the bottom cake so.it looks like they're stacked. I paper pieced with graphic 45 papers and added some cosmic shimmer glue dots for sprinkles and wink of stella to the candles
Lastly I die cut "with love" from my background, cut another 4 from coredinations card and stacked them together and applied lashings of wink of stella
