Make your Own Background

Hei, tervetuloa Craft-Room haasteen pariin! Minä häärin emäntänä parin viikon ajan. Teemani on "itsetehty tausta" eli nyt valmiit paperit takaisin ja embossaamaan, leimaamaan, leikkaamaan, mitä vaan. Minä käytin pohjassa joulupallosabluunaa, Distress Spray Stain & Ink värejä.
-Hi! Welcome, at Craft-Room Challenge. 
I'm your hostess this fortnight and chose the theme " Make your Own Background". So put the designer papers away - and let's stamp, emboss or whatever you like to create something your own - and let us see it too.
Here's how I started! Tando Creative's stencil and Distress Spray Stains ( antique linen  and Vintage photo), paper is Canson Imagine, you can see the positive and negative versions.
Stamp: Tim Holtz; Mediums: Archival Ink, clear embossing, Distress Inks;
Diecuts: swirly flourish Crafts-Too, brown cardstock embossed (dabber) and clear Utee;
snowflakes Penny Black's new dies, cut off the sprayed paper. Text also PB's.

Wow Mervi, this is so clever! It looks very complicated though. You've designed it so beautifully.

I love the nontraditional colors you've chosen. I couldn't tell what your background was made of, at first glance. Beautiful card!
