Default Like It Love It Gotta Have It Challenge for July

This month I decided to do something a little different - let's try making our own backgrounds! I took out a couple of stamps, my Smooch Spritz, and some different colored pads and just played for an hour or so - I had a lot of fun doing this one!

The first one, I just took a damask-type pattern and tried to evenly cover the paper with it.

For the second, I took a couple of different stamps, and used two colors of green for the leaves, and then spritzed the whole thing with green and gold.

For the third, I decided to use a "found" item around the house. Can you guess what I used to make this design? The edge of a binder clip!

Now - see what you can come up with!

Like It - Use 1 stamp over the whole paper
Love It - Use a couple of stamps and try different patterns and colors together
Gotta Have It - Try using found items around the house - what has an interesting texture to it?

Nancy

Love these, Nancy! I especially like the middle one with the leaves. Very cool! I think making backgrounds is a lot of fun, though I've not done much other than the stamped versamark & distress ink ones or the alcohol ink ones.
