Backgrounds

I love making backgrounds and so this month's new theme at Country View Crafts Challenges is perfect for me!
I used my favourite stencils (four of them!) and lots of paint to make the background. Then I added a final image and more stamping for the background. I often find that the background is about a third of the process, then I add the main image(s) followed by the last bits to tie it all together.
I hope you'll join in with us this month!
