Clean and Simple (CAS) 107 - Make Your Own Background

The Clean and Simple #107 this week was a very intersting one ... make your own background.  I thought lots about my options and decided to go with a ink direct to paper technique. 

Using my Color Q inks (Hero Arts) I swiped 2 colors of blue, green, and yellow inks across a piece of white cardstock.  Then I stamped over them (Rustic Branches, Birds of a Feather, Out on a Limb sets, all from Papertrey Ink) in Chocolate Chip ink (SU!).

I kept the card very Clean and Simple to keep the focus on the background.  Just a few brads and dimensional foam tape. 
Thanks to all of those who leave comments.  I appreciate it so much!
