It is time for a new two-week challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow and this time we want you to MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND.
Thanks to Cathi O'Neill of our Design Team, for this challenge we are pleased to welcome a new sponsor coming to us from Australia.
The folks at Molossi have a wide variety of products and you can see what they have to offer when you check out the challenge post at Sugar Creek Hollow.
They are providing a wonderful prize pack for one random winner. Look at all the goodies you could win.
Here are the details of my card from the bottom up:
I started my card with some Bazzill card stock for the blank and then I created my background. First I tore all sorts of papers from an old book, some scraps from my stash and some Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap. I used some Ranger Glue and Seal to glue the torn papers to a piece of cream card stock and then gave them another coat on top..
Then I stenciled over the whole piece using a Moroccan Lattice stencil from Heidi Swapp and some Olive Archival Ink from Ranger. I then covered the whole piece with Wendy Vecchi Orange Blossom and Red Geranium Archival Ink. The final step for the background was to use a Tiny Circles stencil from TCW and Wendy Vecchi Gold Embossing Paste.
Next I took some corrugated card stock from Michaels, inked the edges with Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress Ink and distressed it a bit with my scissors. On top of that I added a panel of net that I picked up in England and then wrapped some satin ribbon from Fabricland around all of these layers and made a bow on the side.
The next layer is a piece of cream card stock that I embossed with a script folder from Cuttlebug and then inked with some more Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The Friends Forever text is computer generated and the image is part of a Darkroom Door collage stamp provided by our sponsor appropriately called Friends that I stamped using Coffee Archival Ink from Ranger and then inked with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
The lock and key are chipboard pieces provided by our sponsor that I rubbed with Onyxite and Rose Quartz Treasure Gold wax paste to get a rusty look. Finally I added the lace flower, also provided by our sponsor but I took the liberty of swapping out the pearl and crystal centre that it came with for something that fit a little better with my colour palette so I hope they won't be upset. Even though I didn't ask for permission, I am asking for forgiveness :)
