Make Your Designer Paper
This is a scheduled post as I am in Calgary for a family reunion.
Our challenge to you this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is to MAKE YOUR OWN DESIGNER PAPER. We want you to use your stamps or digital stamps and create your own background paper. Then we want you to turn that into a vintage, shabby chic or primitive card or other paper crafted project. We are a vintage challenge blog so please ensure that your images and embellishments are of a vintage style and that you follow the challenge theme.
I must admit that I took a little liberty when I created my background paper. I don't have any rubber stamps so I created a transparent picture using a number of vintage stamp brushes for Photoshop and then I printed the picture on some vintage digital paper from Far Far Hill. I originally printed it on a plain background but it had no life. If I had more time I would have tried creating the patterned background as well.
