Hi, everyone! Michelle Lupton back again as a guest designer, this time covering for Michelle Liimatainen.
I love my background stamps. I have quite a few (but you can never have enough, right!?), but there are a couple that I just keep coming back to. “Flower dot pattern” is one of the ones I just adore – it is by Hero Arts and Basic Grey.
I thought I’d start with a piece of watercolour paper (half US letter size) and see what I could come up with.
The starting point – some Stampin’ Up watercolour paper.
The tools – stamp, Versamark ink, Hero Arts embossing powder (and 3 distress inks – colours are in the Inlinkz list below).
I heat embossed the stamped image in white, then I put some Distress Inks onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and dunked the paper into the ink. Dried it with my heat tool, then cut some panels ready for my cards.
For the first card, I used the largest panel and used it as a background.
The sentiment banner looked a little lost by itself, so I swiped some white cardstock with Broken China Distress Ink and cut the borders for the top and bottom of the banner.
