Off stamp

The next challenge one of the girls had was to take a background stamp, and stamp it 3 times using different colors moving the stamp just a little bit every time you stamp.

These were my tries.

Sorry about the lighting, but this gives you an idea.  For this card I used the last background I made which is at the bottom.

Stampinup- background stamp (plaid)
Distress oxide inks - Antique linen, fossilized amber, walnut stain
Heartfelt creation - Delicate Asters stamp and dies, colored w/spectrum markers
Martha Stewart - border punch
My favorite things - Label maker sentiment stamp
Kaiser - gemstones

I am glad I kept going trying other background stamps because I love how this one turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today,
