Make your own Background at Country view

Hello to you all, We have a new challenge starting today over at Country View Challenges and our theme for this month is

Make your own Background

I chose to make a Gelli background for my creation today..Quite a few photo's I'm afraid

I started by  putting some blobs of paint on my Gelli plate

Brayered the paint all over but not completely mixing the colours

Using some tissue paper I made a pattern with one of my stencils

Then laid another stencil over and dabbed some of the paint off the leaves with tissue. Then remove the stencil and lay my card over and press well to get the paint onto my card

With my background cut to size I then decorated it with the Tim Holtz butterfly that had been white embossed onto a scrap of paper that had been used to clean my brayer


The finished card with a sentiment and  flower.xxx
