Make Your Own Background

"Make Your Own Background" is the current challenge on Your Creative Corner. No patterned paper is allowed.  I use designer paper very often, but I love background techniques.  My choice is a mixed media background:  inks, metallic acrylic paint, and webbing spray--brought together in a snowflake embossing folder and accented with black lace and a snowflake rosette.

Hello Evelyn
This looks amazingly beautiful. I am loving the mix of the Bg colours which gives off such warmth and your Black lace adds so much power to the card, remarkably the antithesis of the palette works.
Thank you for joining us once more at Our Creative Corner, we are thrilled to see your work.
