Make your own Background challenge over at Anything Goes.....x

Morning everyone !!
Welcome to my post for the Anything Goes Challenge Blog
This week we were challenged by Kezzy to make a project with a hand made back ground ....
....The challenge runs for two weeks and the DT have some fabulous inspiration up for grabs so please pop over and give them some love ...

My background is made with core'dinations card stock and a beautiful spellbinders embossing plate.
The black is embossed and the pink de-bossed and sanded with a sanding block to let the core colour come through

I used Tim Holtz Jewel card stock for the purple and jade layers and used a distressing tool to ruff all the edges up 

My stamp is by Creative Individuals and was given to me by Lynn at the Craft Den on my recent visit to her shop
I used Staz on ink and some Tim Holtz distress markers to colour little elements of the back ground and then decoupaged the beautiful elephants using scraps of my back ground card showing the core colour

I really enjoyed making this card and hope you like it too !!
