Club Scrap March technique: create your own background

Welcome at the Club Scrap technique challenge.
Every onth one of the girls from the Artist Team
is sharing a technique and this month it is the
talented Tina who is into background techniques.
She has to posts with lots of ideas for backgrounds:

For my background technique I used 2 stencils, a stamp
and one color of ink (sapphire).
The first stencil is from the new Delft kit.
I colored the background, but not to heavy.

Next i used an older stencil from January 2013 Random 
Doorways. I only used the flower in the middle and
colored more heavy several times the flower.

After two stencils it looks like this.

Then i took the cracle stamp from the Delft kit
and stamped all over the background panel.
So here you see the finished background.
Doesn't it look like a tile?!
I printed the tulips from the digital Delft kit 
and colored it with markers. I love that sentiment,
but i wrote it again in a line that was better for
my card today instead of the square look.
(for more digital ideas come back March 24
when the Artist team shares a lot of digital ideas).

I had printed the flowers twice, so I coud add a more
dimentional look on the flowers. With the sentiment in place
 and a ribbon added the card is finished.

I have tulips all over, it is the tulip season!

How about the colorchallenge for 
Today I colored with ink!

Thanks for looking
and have a creative day!

Unbelievable background. Thank you for showing me your incredible technique for making a Delft background. I've been wanting to do that on a teapot for awhile. It's a lovely technique.
