Our Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight challenge now has it's own new home and a brand new challenge today. We also have a bunch of lovely new DT members dying to get involved and show you how they interpret the challenges both on the regular Crafty Cardmakers blog and on the new Spotlight one.
This week we are challenging you to make your own backing papers - you can do this with inks, stamps, paints or you can do what I did and create papers digitally.
I have used the digi stamp She who Paints the Forest provided by this week's sponsor The Stamping Boutique and coloured the image with Promarkers to match the backing papers I created digitally when I was experimenting with designing papers to work alongside some of my own digi stamps. These ones were all based on a leaf design, I used Adobe Illustrator CS5 and drew a leaf shape which I copied and pasted into repeat patterns - very laborious - I'm sure there must be easier ways!!
I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Cheerful Stamp Pad - Spring
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Spring has Sprung
Craft Us Crazy - Anything that reminds you of nature
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Anything goes
Freshly Brewed - 3 or more patterned papers
