Creating Backgrounds

The March Technique Challenge this month over at Club Scrap is to create your own backgrounds.  Tina shared so many different ways to create backgrounds that the topic was continued on for a second blog posting. If you'd like to share your own technique or expand on one shown, please link to the Technique Challenge Linky Party for a chance to win a Club Scrap gift certificate.

I started by taping down the cracked porcelain stencil to keep the paper from shifting. 

Next spread clear texture paste onto paper and stencil.
Remove stencil and sprinkle fairy dust (glitter). Let dry. 
Close up after drying.
Time to create beautiful works of art with your background!

This card was created using the Fusion Card's newest challenge:

I've been honored by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers and named the newest Queen of Snark (which is shocking for some of you).  This title comes with the honor of being the guest designer for the new Farm challenge. I wanted to create a farm feel to the whole card right down to the embellishments.  I think chicken wire, feathers and twine should do it:) Club Scrap papers, ribbon and stamps. Impression Obsession background stamp. Darice embossing folder. Recollections feathers.  Inside of card: A true friend is one who thinks you are a good egg even if you're half cracked.

I hope you join us over at the Sisterhood and share your farm creations.
