How to make your own background with the stamps!

Hello Everyone!!

A brand new week and January 2016 is almost over, just as in a blink of an eye!!! It feels like just yesterday we were welcoming a brand new year and time has come to welcome a brand new month in the new year as well!
I hope you remember this months challenge is which Anything goes! Read all about the challenge here
We have a lovely mood board as an inspiration and the only thing to be followed from the mood board is the colors. You need to atleast have 3 of the 4 colors present in the mood board!

I made a few bookmarks!! Very simples ones and I wanted to highlight the background stamps that peek-a-boo has released! Luckily I used both the background stamps and make 4 bookmarks! These are very easy peasy, and works great with distress inks!

Here are the bookmarks!

All I did was distress the panels with the distress inks and then use the same distress inks to stamp the background stamps! This creates a wonderful background! It's super easy to make and is sureshot fun!

Since I wanted to highlight the background stamps, I kept the foreground very simple and just added one flower from another gorgeous stampset and the sentiment from the same stamp set.

I hope you liked my simple bookmarks! Do play along in the current months challenge!!

Happy Crafting!
