This week's challenge at Paper Pretties is to make your own background paper. Normally I wouldn't make my own background paper but that's because I have a lot of patterned paper. But that's the challenge so I embrace it. One of the easiest ways to do this is to use a stamp set that has matching small images. Paper Pretties Hippity, Hoppity Sophia is just such a set. Besides Easter sentiments there are two eggs which I inked up and stamped on card stock. I also ran some card stock through my Big Shot in a tiny dots folder, after it was embossed I lightly rubbed an ink pad across it. Because it's a mat there isn't much of it showing, before the image was attached it looked more like patterned paper. If you put your mind to it you can think up other ways to make your own paper. You've got a week to do it so put your thinking cap on and get crafty. We look forward to seeing what you will make.
