Crafty Cardmakers and More Challenge 138

The challenge this time is to make your own background - so no patterned paper (unless you've applied the pattern yourself)!

For this challenge, I decided to give my Pan Pastels an outing. I use them a lot when I make flowers, but haven't used them widely for backgrounds despite that being the reason I started getting some.

I started with a sheet of white watercolour paper (because it was there and I wanted something with a little texture) and shaded various citrus shades over it. Then I embossed using an Embossalicious folder, before added further detail to the embossing with similar and darker shades. I cut the result to size for a 7 by 7 card. The sentiment is from a Spellbinders die set, and the background and matting for that use some Sizzix dies. The flowers were made using a range of dies including Sizzix, Crealies and others I can't currently remember.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Be Crafty and Craft where anything goes,
Crafts Galore Encore where anything goes,
Crafting Musketeers where they want us to use a die cut,
Craftalicious where they want embossing,
613 Avenue Create where anything goes,
