Beautiful Backgrounds

 Morning all.  It's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4guyz this morning. Cindy chose the theme of 'create your own background' for this fortnight. I wasn't entirely sure what to do for this one so I turned to my stamps first.  Once I had an image in mind I was sure the background would pop into my head.  And that's exactly what happened. I chose this cute set from Tracey Hey and the rest was easy peasy.  

Once I had the zebra in my mind I stenciled the background using a cheap stencil from the Range.  I have a set of animal print stencils and this is one of them.  As I intended to make my zebra colourful it made sense to used coloured inks.  I am so pleased with how it turned out.  

Please pop over and join in the fun.  I don't very often create my own backgrounds so I would love to see your ideas.

Thanks for reading.

Love Dawn x
