L40: Make a background

howdy!
Had some fun making this little gem.
Created the background using two stamps from Lawn Fawn's "Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum"
using white embossing powder.  I did two lines at a time.





Supplies:
Stamps by Lawn Fawn
Paper: cs by Bazzill and patterned papers by MME
Other: embossing powder, Spellbinders Wonky rectangles, Hemtique string, Fiskars punch

I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge #40
Make Your Own Background Paper
and Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes!


All was well and good until I stabbed myself with the
stick pin I had in my bottle of Glossy Accents.
 And we're not talking a prick, but the thing was REAL deep and ached for a while.
So glad not to get any blood on the card after painstakingly making that background!

Thanks for looking... and be careful out there crafters, it is a dangerous game we play....
