Default WT439 - Featuring...Backgrounds (8/8/13)

Linda (Holstein) is our hostess here this week, but she's experiencing internet problems, so I'm posting her challenge for her. I hope you're back online soon, Linda!
I loved her challenge this week, I hope you all do too!

Linda is asking us to use a background stamp or make our own backgrounds . I have a huge collection of background stamps and am always happy to pull them out, but in the wonderful sample Gail (GailNM) made she used the same stamp for her background as for her focal image.

Have fun with your backgrounds today!

Remember to use the keyword WT439 when uploading your card, and link it here on this thread too so more people get to see it .

I used woodgrain background with Sprinkles.

Cool

I enjoy creating backgrounds w/stamps and also direct-to-paper. Here are two more I made.

This first card is for the WT and yesterday's IC challenge. I used both a bkgrd stamp and direct to paper:

IC401 IF FRIENDS WERE FLOWERS I'D PICK YOU by gabalot - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

This second card is for the WT and Friday's F4A challenge. I used many stamps and direct to paper:
