"Make your own Background"

Well I thoroughly enjoyed my first challenge with It's all about the Vintage and visiting your blogs.  It's time now for a new challenge and this time we would like to see your vintage/retro/old fashioned projects where you have created your own background.

I have made two card; one feminine and the other suitable for a man or boy!

My first background has been inked using distress inks, stencilled and then stamped using flourish stamps and my long forgotten about tapestry flower stamps.  I then added the old book page for detail.

My second card has used greyboard as the background which has been gessoed, painted, crackle medium applied and then painted again to give the cracked aged appearance.  It worked out pretty good and works well with the image used.

We have two sponsors again this fortnight and they are:-
