Make your own background

It's time for the DT to share more ideas for making your own backgrounds. You still have time to join in the challenge which will run until the end of the month. Create a background using Serendipity stamps or dies for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate. Link don't need a blog to play. You can find all the details on the Serendipity Blog.

 The stamp of the month is 50% OFF
Jeanne made an awesome card using the Japanese Maple stamp for her background. If you missed it, you can see it here!

Check out the backgrounds from the DT

This is the bg I made that inspired my card.
I have used distress inks and the Retro Starburst Cling Set.

This is what I ended up with!
I love the elegant simplicity of the Berry Sprig. The Merry Christmas stamp was used by masking off the, "Christmas".
All of these stamps are used on the PPP Stitched Duo 3 tag that Serendipity carries.

The berries were colored up with Copics, Wink and then Rock Candy Stickles to add a little winter feel. On the black paper Christmas was heat embossed using detailed holographic ep. 

Thanks for looking!

Don't forget...Our next Blog Hop will be Friday Oct 2nd
Join in and see some NEW goodies and play for a chance to WIN!!
