Stamped Background - CAS-ual Fridays CFC92

Hi there

The housework has been abandoned in favour of making a card for my chap to send to his mum for Mother's Day.  I chose to follow the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays which is 'Wallpaper' - to stamp your own background on your CAS creation.

And here it is...
and a closer view of the sentiment panel...
I thoroughly enjoyed making this one although I still only have a small selection of ink colours.  I think I will be using this technique of masking and stamping backgrounds a lot as it was great fun and all you need is card, ink and some stamps, easy peasy.  I scored the masked panel to add some definition and finished it off with some emerald gems.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Kanban Crafts - Autumn Silhouettes (flowers); Clearly Besotted Stamps - Paired Up (tiny leaves); Clearly Besotted Stamps - Happy Everything (sentiment)
  • Ink: Versa Color - Lilac, Lavender, Peony, Amethyst, Turquoise, Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Gems: From stash

That really is all from me today, thanks as always for visiting and for your lovely comments, I appreciate them so much.
