Rose



   The theme for this fortnight's Crafty Cardmakers challenge is 'create your own background'.
   I created my background paper by using part of the rose stamp from Carnation Crafts 'Before the Rainbow' collection and colouring it using Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I then matted and layered this onto dark and light orange card. I used the same colours for the mats and layers for the decoupaged rose flower which was cut from a downloaded vignette using a Carnation Crafts die.

Pony plait


   I have coloured this image called Pony Plait from Hettie Clare Art using Promarkers and added Distress Inks to the background although the pale blue does not show up that much in the photo.
