PWC 249 - Make Your Own Background

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.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Paper Pretties "Hippity, Hoppity Sophia"clear
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and "Teal Zeal"; Versa Magic "Pink Petunia"
paper - MFT "Kraft", "Pink Lemonade", "Sour Apple" and "Sno-Cone" card stock
miscellaneous - copics; Spellbinder's "Egg" die; Martha Stewart "Grass" punch; Stampin' Up "Corner Ticket Punch"; pink Dew Drops; Divine Twine; egg charm

  12. Samsung Galaxy S3 is the latest version of Android, a whopping 4.
    Note 2 adopts the same cover material of Samsung galaxy s3 to make its rear cover, hence strengthening fashionable aesthetic feelings, but
    devoid of flexibility that Note has. _To present to three other people to
    join in the support.

  13. Even though there are only 19 focal points, as opposed to Nikon's 39, the quality is still unparalleled. All in all this is a great digital camera to have if you're looking to
    take high speed quality pictures or movies. The wide open
    aperture should allow great low light shots with creative
    control over the aperture.

  14. Although I've since switched from a Canon consumer camera to a Nikon prosumer camera (the D300), I still use the Nikon version of the same lenses. Of course, choosing a camera body doesn't lock you into only using
    lenses by that manufacturer, as there are several good third-party lens makers producing
    quality lenses for both Canon and Nikon cameras.
    In order to remove the lens, depress the lens release button and rotate the lens clockwise.
