Today's card was designed for this month's optional challenge of "Make Your Own Background" over at the Mix It Up Challenge Blog and is a soft, subtle example of making your own background using the chalk marbling technique.
Here is a great video (but it's not mine!) that explains the chalk marbling process...enjoy. There's just something so magical and mysterious about pulling the paper back out of the water...you never know what you are gonna get, lol!
All the images came from a beautiful stamp set that was a freebie from one of my recent crafting magazines from Great Britian and were stamped using Memento Black ink and coloring was done with Prismacolor pencils.
Sequins in two colors and a "happy" diecut from aqua glimmer paper complete the front of this A2 card. Until next time ~ happy crafting!
