Think INK #25 - Create Your Own Background

For the latest Think INK Challenge on the Artful INKables blog Marti has challenged us to make our own background paper or use a special background technique. I have used the NEW Spot On Summer stamp set to create the card below.

The inspiration for this card came from Stephanie Halinski's creation on page 92 of the new Card Style magazine. Instead of using a butterfly image for the background, I used the ice cream cone and large circle stamp from the Spot On Summer set, to create my own background paper. A single ice cream cone was colored in muted shades and then a twine-threaded button was added to the top.

Challenges used for this card:
