The theme for today’s challenge is Background Building, and I really enjoy creating cards using some of the more neglected little stamps! Here’s my card:
I love the tiny stamps from Scenery: Rectangled and Triangled so I used one of them to create a large background panel. It didn’t take too long, as I’d chosen my ink colours in advance and had them ready to go between each colour change.
Once I’d stamped the background, I trimmed it down and adhered it to a white card base. I then stamped a sentiment from Ellen Hutson’s Totally Awesome set with black ink and then adhered the complimentary die-cut piece below it. This Brushstroke Wonderful die is gorgeous and whimsical – perfect for any card!
For a bit of dimension, I also added some die-cut vellum leaves around the sentiment – these were created with the In Bloom: Maggie’s Roses Cutaways and add such a delicate feel to the whole card.
I hope you’ll see what stamps you can use to create amazing backgrounds, and play along with the challenge over at the Winnie and Walter blog.
