Background stamping techniques for cards
My post yesterday has got me thinking about using different techniques for the backgrounds of cards (and I guess layouts, too if you want to).
On my card above, I have used stamps from the You're The Best stamp set (unfortunately no longer available, but I'm sure there are many similar alternatives) and just gone with a light coloured ink (I have used Slate which I love) and simply stamped the background to cover it.
Then it is just a matter of adding some co-ordinating paper and a sentiment on a label with some funky embellishments. Super simple and quick for an eye-catching masculine card.
