Make your own background

Hi, welcome here at the Craft-Room Challenge. Thank you for your beautiful entries to Zoe's  Seasonal Colours theme. Sorry to say but there were gorgeous entries that didn't fit our new rules!
The winners and Top 3 is announced here next week.

I'm Mervi, your hostess this fortnight. Although there are so fabulous designer papers, which I love the most, I chose the theme  - "make your own background"!
Lots of way to do it, stamping, embossing and many techniques. Remember that we must see the base too.
Our sponsor is:

Here are the inspirations from our talented Design Team:









Now it's your turn!
Please add your creation here after reading the rules of our challenge, thank you, have fun;-))m

Now for the top 3.....
We absolutely loved your steampunk take on one of the classic forest critters, the owl.  Very, very cool!  Owls also happen to be my favorite animal. 
We just loved this scrapbook page with the wonderful background paper.
This is an absolutely beautiful forest scene.  It feels like being on a midnight stroll in the woods.  Thank You so much Ladies and please remember to take your Top 3 badge from our sidebar.

Our Rules

We are refreshing things just a little and have some updates/revisions to the rules. Please read these and be sure your entry qualifies.

1 You must check the challenge details and comply with all the specifications. i.e. Tell us what about xxxx inspired you means we expect to see some information relating your project to our challenge on your post.

2 Token elements are insufficient if our challenge is for example "Wings" that tiny little flying thing in the bottom left background is not qualifying element.

3 Entries that are really promoting products and or other challenges are no longer allowed.

With these 3 rules we are looking to see that your entry is really a response to the challenge. We work hard on our team inspiration pieces, we have a system in place to make sure we will comment on all the entries we can and this team often comment on more than the those required by our system. All we ask is that you join in with the spirit of our challenge. Inherent is this is the requirement that your project be new and not a back line to an older project.

We are not going to spend a lot of time policing this, entries that do not qualify will simply be ignored by the team.

4 You may not enter more than 5 other challenges besides ours that is a total of 6 challenges entered.

5 You may not enter this challenge more than 3 times per theme.

6 Winner and Top 3 will be selected by team vote

7 While we try to comment on all entries some of us have a problem with WordPress and have found that we cannot always successfully comment on these.

7a We are also cautious about having to fill in a questionnaire before we can comment. We might not take the time if we have a lot to get through.

7b please turn off word verification

8 Our decision is final in all considerations of compliance with these rules.

9 Prizes are offer depending on availability, we are dependant on our very generous sponsors and from time to time we will provided the prize ourselves.

10 Please remember to add a link from your post to our challenge site here.

The purpose of this update is to encourage our followers who regularly join in with some fabulous work that is inspired by the challenge and who take the time to share it. We do not care what your style/standard is we just want to see you grow as artists and perhaps play a part in your journey.
