Sweet Stamps Monthly Technique - Make your own Backgrounds

Hello everyone, this is my first project to show you today. Over on Sweet Stamps today is the 15th so that means we have our monthly technique challenge and this month the theme is " Make your own background" 
I really wish I had taken a picture of my background before I embellished it as you can only see a small part. I used acrylic paints and a mask to create my background, I just adore these new eco friendly acrylic paints and the color I used today was aged gold.. 

Another new technique for me is gilding flakes. I used them on this rather gorgeous flower stamp from Sweet Stamps this stamp is called Summer Bloom.. The corner die has been heated embossed with black embossing powder. 

Close up of the flowers I have used an pages from an old book to create the flowers I just inked them in Antique Linen distress inks before I dipped them into the melted beeswax. In the middle I have used card candi 

Hope you have enjoyed my little creation today I'll be back later with my Cheery Lynn new release post.. 
Have a great day, catch ya laters...
