It's November already and another week for Top Tip Tuesday
This week we have a great tutorial by  Samantha making your own background papers with Impressibilities.
 Our challenge this week is...
Get inky making your own background papers.

Our sponsors this week are:-

Here is my card, I made my background with Artemio stamps and chalks and ink, It doesn't show the colours too well. I punches a large Woodware flower and leaves, and cover the flower centre with little hearts.

I must admit it is fun making your own background papers, it make the card a little more personal and it can match your embellishments perfectly. 
So get messy and let us see your cards. 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
