Hello folks! Welcome to My first post for May for The Artistic Stamper. This month's theme is 'backgrounds'.
The Artist Stamper have a fantastic collection of stamps which can be used for backgrounds.
I love making my own backgrounds - starting with a white piece of card and adding colours, textures and layers to create a background.
And this is what I did for this creation...
I started with a white piece of card - size 7" x 7" and coloured the white card with a selection of blues and purples Distress Ink.
I then added a couple of squirts of water and let the water run down the card.
I used The Artistic Stamper Mini Backgrounds A6 stamp set, Mini Backgrounds A6 #1 and Mini Backgrounds A6 #2 by Neil Walker.
(These stamps do all come as individual A5 stamps. But with the Mini Background set, there are 4 stamps in the set which I find gives me much more variety.)
I used stamps from all three sets and stamped using the same Distress Inks, layering and overstamping the patterns.
I then stamped the butterfly from the Insects and Butterflies A5 stamp set on to the background with black ink. I then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
To finish I added a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Advantus Idea-Ology Small Talk sticker.
Thanks for popping by my blog today.
Toodles for now,
Here is everything I used...
I would like to enter this in to the following challenges:
