I had SO MUCH FUN making my card for this week's Shopping our Stash! We want to see you use a background stamp OR stamp your own background. Since I don't often use background stamps I decided to go with the more challenging option.
Here's the card, then I'll explain what I did.
Supplies: music background from Inkadinkado; Versamark; Black Detail embossing powder; Clear detail EP; Paper Smooches sentiment; vellum scrap; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Distress inks in Broken China, Worn Lipstick, and Squeezed Lemonade; Tattered Rose glimmer mist; homemade enamel dots
I began by stamping & embossing the music background, and then I sponged the various distress inks over top. I love how just three inks gave this great variety of colour! Then I flicked it with some pale glimmer mist to get some shiny bits of water droplets. Adding the sentiment strip on an angle wasn't my original plan but just seemed to work so well I went with it - and that made a much better backdrop to add the enamel dots. Like I said, the kids are addicted to making & sorting those, so I have all these perfect little baggies on my desk just begging to be used :)
So, what kind of background check can you pass? lol! Come and play with us before next Monday, June 2!
