Creating your own background paper using color washes.

Happy Winter Holidays
Winter in the Sonoran desert means I get to enjoy the outdoors as the sun is shinning and it is about 60 degrees. A great time to go outside and get messy creating some custom background paper. This is a great way to use up scrap paper. The star on this card was made from left over photo paper that I had after printing a few photos. I sprayed it with color washes and sprinkled it with Pearl ex. The background was a scrap of white cardstock.

The dies used are Spellbinders Stars, Long scalloped Rectangles, and Long Rectangles. the stamp is from Rubber Necker Stamp Company.
