Friday

I did some background stamping! :)



Hello

So my friend C gave me this really lovely leafy background stamp which I never got to using because
  1. I didn't have an acrylic block big enough for it [yeah, a totally lame excuse *LOL*]
  2. Background stamping is scary....what if I miss a spot?




Guess what? It wasn't that scary...so I missed a couple of spots [er...kind of expected *LOL*]....strategically covered by the pretty doily. And I still don't have an acrylic block big enough for the stamp - I pressed the kraft cardstock on the inked stamp. :)

Supplies: Lily Bee, Pebbles and Basic Grey patterned paper, Crate Paper chipboard, Jillibean stickers, I/O stamp, White Stazon, Maya Road ribbon, doiley, tulle, kraft cardstock.

Inspired by CPS.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! If you have time, please come play along with my guest Annette's colouring and paper piecing challenge and LESSology Challenge #11: Flights of Fantasy! :)

Looks FABulous...love those sweet birds you've been using lately.

Your card is beautiful! Here's a tip for stamping bg stamps or other large stamps clearly. Let your fingers do the walking! Pull out your phone book and stamp using it as a base. Those padded pages help "sink" the image onto the paper. :-)

Beautiful card! Love all the layers!

Beautiful card! BTW, there are a ton of things you can use in place of an acrylic block. I like to use a Pyrex baking dish- it's clear, large and sturdy.

beautiful background and card. I rarely use an acrylic block for my largest background stamps. I just set them right side up on the table and place my paper on top of them and rub with my fingers or use a brayer.

Miae said...

Hi Yvonne! It’s already deep into the New Year and into the crisis, but hope is the last thing to fade... We’ll survive!

Awesome, as always...
