Day 2 of the class presented more ways to use background stamps. I went to my collection to find some alternatives to those already used in class. The technique was to stamp a line-art background with Versamark and emboss in white. Then three tones of a single color family were sponged on dark-to-light to create an ombre effect.
For my first sample I chose a stamp of tiny circle dots and inked in shades of teal Distress Inks. I trimmed the panel and punched the side edges with a scallop. A printed vellum strip was wrapped top to bottom. Three teal rhinestones substitute for 'O's in the text. All this was mounted on a white card base.
For the second card I used a script background stamp and tones of purple. The panel was trimmed and backed with a dark green cardstock and placed on a white card base. Then I diecut two leafy branches from a sticky-back cardstock and decorated them with five purple paper flowers.
This was too busy to add a sentiment. This lends itself to any occasion.
