Background



If it's Monday, it's also time for Simon Says Stamp Challenge!
This week we challenge you to

MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND!

This week we are showcasing CARABELLE STUDIO products!
You don't have to use them in your projects 
but we'd really love to see them used if you have any. 


As always you can win a $50 voucher and spend it


I'm staying in an Autumn mood longer than I expected
and this year the season keep inspiring me more then ever. 
This is a B-day card with textures, embossing, rust - everything I love.


I got addicted to this Carabelle Studio Texte Grunge Embossing Folder 
from the first moment I received it and I really use it a lot, like any other!

So I embossed those fabulous letters on a watercolor paper
and started to bleding distress oxide inks over the surface.
Love how the letters got highlighted with darker shades. 
I stamped the salient parts with distress oxide ink and clear embossed it.


The main element is a leftover (yes! as always!) of the Sizzix Scroll die.
I first covered it with Distress Grit paste and then started to coloring.
I used the Prima Pattina Effect pastes, Ground Espresso spray
and one of my fave Lucky Emerald wax. Love the rusty look of it. 


There is a mix of green inks behind the scroll
and a mix of browns as my base background.


The base was stamped using Ground Espresso Oxide ink 
and Simon Clear Embossing powder. 
I also added some writings from Inventor stamp sets 
as a kind of labels to the scroll panel. 
The sentiment is in Polish and means "it's your B-day today"
