SOG December Challenge: Make Your Own Background

Hi, everybody! we're ringing in December with a new challenge at Some Odd Girl! Thanks so much to everybody who joined in the speech bubble fun for our last challenge! We're keeping the creativity going this month with a "MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND" challenge!

For my card today, I chose the giraffe and a sentiment from the "On Safari" clear set:


I made my custom background with one of the patterns in the Rectangle Backgrounds cut file. Instead of die cutting card stock, I used the file to cut a transparency that was the size of a card front to create a stencil. Then, I secured the stencil to the card stock and my work surface with washi tape and sponged ink onto the card stock.

After letting the ink dry, I tore one side of the card stock panel and finished making my card!

So, now it's time for you to grab your SOG stamps and your craft supplies, and get inky with it!

Make a card, tag, or other creation that uses an SOG image and is based on the theme for this month's challenge, then link your entry on the post for this challenge at the Some Odd Girl blog! We can't wait to see what you'll create for this one!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful week! I'll be part of the December clear stamp release previews this week at Some Odd Girl...I know you'll fall in LOVE with all of them!

Hugs,
