 Earlier this month I created several pages of backgrounds for a swap project and ended up with a bit left over.  To create the background I stamped  Peacock Feathers Distress Ink onto plastic packaging then spritzed with water. Next, I flipped the wet inky plastic over and pressed it onto my Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  I did the same with Carved Pumpkin Distress ink then dried it with a heat gun.  I got a little carried away and made more backgrounds than I needed for the swap so I set a sheet aside for a future project.  Today was the future project.  The Technique Challenge at SCS this week is called Simple Self-Framing.  The framing layer is popped up on cardboard and the sentiment layer is inset.  I used the charming (Blessings) sentiment from the Eat Pie stamp set by The Project Bin then added a few sparkling enamel dots.

For the inside, I stamped another sentiment in the set and stamped the pumpkin also included in the set on a scrap of background and fussy cut it.

For a final touch, I added the Blessings sentiment to the back of the envelope!
