I created one layer backgrounds with background stamping over colored images for these two very different cards. I love that you can use the same technique for both elegant and whimsical designs!
For my first card I used the Magnificent Magnolia Stamp/Die Set to stamp the floral design and greetings on an A2 size piece of smooth white cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. The images were colored in with Copic Markers.
I stamped over the entire background with the Simon Says Stamp Good Reading Stamp Set and Simon Says Stamp Willow Ink. I love the text of this background and how it has a distressed vibe perfect for a background!
The edges of the design were further inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and an ink blending tool. This softens the edges beautifully!
The card was finished by adding white pen detail to the flowers and leaves, adding Glossy Accents to the center of each flower and finishing with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green and Morning Dew.
My second card share today features stamping the Lift Me Stamp/Die Set images on smooth white cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and coloring the images in with Copic Markers.
I stamped over the entire background with the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Alphabet Background Stamp and Simon Says Stamp Mint Ink. I love the text of this background and how it has a distressed vibe perfect for a background!
The edges of the design were further inked with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and an ink blending tool.
The sentiment from the Lift Me Stamp/Die Set was stamped on black cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being trimmed into a thin strip and adhered to the bottom of the card as shown.
The Simon Says Stamp Script Hello Die was die cut from smooth white cardstock adhered to Fun Foam with Stick It Adhesive, inked with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and adhered above the sentiment strip. Glossy Accents was applied to the die cut word for a glossy, raised finish.
A scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in rainbow color fill in the white space and Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard give the stars some glittery sparkle!
