Creating a background

I love so many things about crafting and this beautiful flower stamp from Altenew Stamps and a stencil for creating a background are definitely two of those things. 
 The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is to create your own background and so I reached for this writing stencil, a foam blending tool and some Distress Ink pads.  I love the antique look some old writing adds and the inks create a soft look.  
 I wanted to do minimal coloring on these flowers using some Copic markers.  
 I sprayed the finished flower and background with a Heidi Swapp spray that gave everything a pearl look. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
