World Card Making Day with Joy Clair: Background Bonanza!

Hello there Joy Clair friends!  It's Kerry here!  How are you enjoying WCMD so far?  I am loving all the events, challenges and The Big Hop of the Design Team and Special Guest that we organized for you!  
When picking a challenge this year I went with an old favorite: background building.  I'm thrilled to share a fun project I created using the new Little Monster Set.  This is such a fun and POWERFUL stamp set and I wanted to incorporate as many sentiments as I could.  
I don't know about you, but I really have a problem cutting up my beautiful decorative printed paper.  I just can't seem to cut it up.  Sooo...because I'm a hoarder, I tend to resort to creating my own backgrounds instead.  That's just what I did with this stamp set!

I love the power of these sentiments in this set and thought it would be neat to create a wall...You know, the wall we sometimes build around ourselves that inevitably hinders our ability to be the best person HE created us to be?  You know, the person who needs that wall broken? 
I decided to focus on the sentiments by stacking them one by one (such a heavy load) on paper then did a bit of distressing.  The monsters arrived soon after to destroy everything.  The monsters...Yeah, they look cute but they're up to something more sinister!

I mean really, look at those innocent smiles and those sparkly eyes?  They'll get you if you're not careful!  So please, check yourself and be on guard!  They're always ready to pounce!

I hope something I made will inspire you to make some backgrounds of your own with stamps, stencils, dies, paint, or anything that makes you happy!  I can't wait to see your creative backgrounds take center stage on your lovely cards.  Make sure to add a link-up for your chance to win a stamp set from JC!!!  
Prize: One randomly chosen project that is linked up will win a stamp set from Joy Clair Store.
