Carabelle Autumn Background card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Make Your Own Background". We're also showcasing CaraBelle Studio products, so if you have them it would be wonderful if you could use them in your project!

Autumn is here and it's really getting colder, which I don't really like. But the colors of the leaves are so pretty, so that helps a bit. These pretty colors made me want to make an autumnal card. This week we have to make our own background. Nothing new here ;). I almost always make my own background for my projects, and this time I went for Distress Oxides. These inks and technique are in my favorites top. I chose the colors Frayed Burlap, Vintage Photo and Ripe Persimmon.


Since we showcase Carabelle Studio products, I used the Mixed Media Strips stamps and also Degrade De Points stencil. I used this together with Texture Paste and Metallique Paint Steampunk Copper. This gives it a cool metalic effect and fabulous texture, but really subtle.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

This is such a warm card, I love the mix of browns and orange which is one of my favorite last days and the touch of black flowers is just perfect. Great texture with those copper tiny drops, too. Lovely! Have a nice week!
