Wow, isn't time flying? Over at The Flower Challenge where we celebrate wonderful florals, it's time for our latest challenge and this month, we want to see your wonderful background stamping.
I created my background using the layering stamps that came free with the September edition of Papercraft Essentials. I used my misti to get a good impression from the block layer as it was a bit patchy at times. I used my Dreamees Dinky Inky ink pads to stamp the flowers and my memento black to stamp the line drawing layer. As you can see my stamping wasn't very accurate at times, but this technique is very forgiving.
Once dry I die cut my Elizabeth Crafts Warm Thoughts die out of the panel. I glued the panel onto a mat and then onto my 6x6 card blank. I die cut the sentiment several times out of white card and glued them all together with the patterened one on top to give dimension. I also die cut an extra one in white and inlaid this into the background, I find doing this is the easiest way to slot back in the patterened paper that has come out of the centre of the letters etc. Finally, I glued the built up sentiment back in place. The sentiment doesn't show up brilliantly on camera, but is easy to read in real life.
I can't wait to see what you come up with for our challenge, just remember to check our rules regarding how many challenges you can link to and that the focal image needs to be flowers, not just one stuck on as an embellishment. If you can include our cue card in your post, even better!
