The challenge on the Arty girls blog this week is handmade backgrounds. I do love making my own backgrounds and this card was no exception. I made this for a forum challenge a month or so ago but never got around to posting it on my blog.
The piece behind the photo was done with chalk ink pads and a piece of clingfilm, I scrunched up the clingfilm, dabbed all over it with the ink then carefully unscrewed it and lay it down on the piece of card and patted it to transfer the ink, I do like the random effect I achieved in doing this. The main background was done by sponging and stamping in the same tonal chalk inks.
