Create your own Backgrounds for CCM&More

Evening Everyone
We have a new challenge over at CCM&More today.

Pamellia is hosting today. She would like to see something that you have created using a background you made yourself. So NO designer papers please.
I love making backgrounds so the hard part for me was choosing which particular technique to use.
I decided on one made using pieces of  Cut'n Dry foam and a Kaleidacolour ink pad. Shadow Stamping of a sort.
And yes, I know it's a Christmas card lol.
Having spent the last few weeks working on samples for the next Woodware Christmas catalogue I'm kind of in the groove as they say.
I used different shaped pieces of  Cut'n Dry foam to create my own 'Shadow Stamps'.
I inked them using a Fresh Green Kaleidacolour inkpad and then randomly stamped over white card using first, second and even third generation ink.
I stamped and embossed this lovely modern Christmas Tree from Woodware onto the background and then 'moved' the ink with a wet paint brush to colour the image.
I also added some Glossy Accents and Glitter Glue to the baubles.
I hope that you will join us for this latest challenge, and don't forget to stop by HERE and see what the rest of the team came up with, there are some stunning samples.
Happy Crafting and hugs.
