Love to Scrap Challenge #25 - Back it Up!

This week's challenge at Love to Scrap is a great one - make your own background!  That's right, no pattern paper is allowed this time.  You can use mists, paint, stamps, embossing, etc. but no pattern paper.

We have two sponsors this week:   Bugaboo Stamps (7 images of choice) and Eureka Stamps (5 images of choice).  I used the image "Nuts About Books" from Bugaboo Stamps for my projects.

For the tag/bookmark on the left, I printed the digi image along with a computer generated sentiment, and then stamped various small images in bright colors to make the background.  For the gift card holder on the right, I created the text background in Microsoft Word, then added the fussy cut digi image on top with foam adhesive.  In both cases, the image was colored with Copics, and then rock candy stickles were dabbed over the peanut portion of the image to add a little texture and sparkle.

I can't wait to see all the creative backgrounds we get for this challenge!   Be sure to link up your project to the Love to Scrap blog for a chance to win one of the prizes from our sponsors.
