365 Challenge- Stamp a Background



I love to stamp backgrounds! It is the cheapest and easiest way to change your paper. I learned how over time and it still takes practice, a steady hand, and good stamps. CTMH clear acrylics make stamping larger backgrounds much simpler because you can easily see where you need to line up your edges.

anywhoooo....I distressed the desert sand c/s base and with Argyle Backgrounds Set (ctmh), stamped the diamonds with sweet leaf ink on sweet leaf cardstock. Used the Basket Weave from same set, on vanilla cream c/s and using desert sand ink. I stamped the flower 2x and cut out, layered and pop dotted. Pin from Heidi Grace, satin ribbon from Big Lots (love this store....!) Vineyard berry ink and c/s for pop of color.

Thanks for stopping by today!
