8 different ways of using your Background Stamp

           How have you been doing? I did some crafting lately and here is what I came up with.. If u are my regular blog reader, you would have known, I like to make the best use of my available supplies.. I sat down with an intention to make as many as possible with a background stamp.I used this :)

Hero Arts Flourish Background

1.As a Background

 A Multi color Background.. Technique used : Multicolorstamping. 
A little smudge near purple.. my son touched with wet hands ;(

2.Stamp on strips of paper
3. Make flowers
               I used tone on tone stamping  for tech 2

                For Flowers, I stamped BG and used MFT layered rose

Entering the above 2 cards for catchy challenges 
 4.Use it to stamp half of the card 

         You could do this Vertically/Horizontally/Diagonally.Technique used Crayon resist with distress  ink


5. Mask your background at places

          I used washi tape as masks for this card and removed it after stamping. Technique used :Masking
 6.Use it on Tags
            Technique used : Stamping with water on Distress ink

7. Use it on Die cuts

Technique used : Emboss resist with distress ink

 8. Use it on the corner of the cards

                       I marked center on all 4 sides and drew a line with pencil. Using it as guide, I stamped on the corners. Drew lines with marker and erased pencil line.

I simply love this Impression Obsession Butterfly die!! I have added a monarch butterfly pic from google for comparision :)

Inks used : Colorbox colors, Distress ink Broken China, Peeled paint, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard seed, Worn Lipstick. Dies from Impression Obsession - Butterfly, Umbrella, Candy mini
