The challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More this time is to make your own background. To create my background I used free stamps from a Practical Publishing magazine. I stamp them randomly over a rectangular piece of card and then masking the larger flowers I dusted the background using green and yellow distress inks. I coloured the centre of the flowers and shaded the petals using Promarkers. I then wrapped a green organza ribbon round this before matting it onto white card.
The main image is stamped using another freebie from a magazine and features the Somebunny to Love character. Again I coloured it using Promarkers. After cutting it out using a Spellbinders oval die and fixing it to the card I outlined it with outline peel offs which I had coloured using Promarkers. Finally I added a Colour Me Crazy flower and added a card candi to its centre.
