Another Stamped Background

Hi Everybody,

Using background stamps can be a real time saver especially if you don't have papers or card that matches your design.

For this card I simply stamped the design with Versamark and used white embossing powder on Kraft Card

I coloured portions of the image with pencils.

It was quite relaxing to do it this way and it didn't take me that long.

Once it was done I dotted it with sequins and then add the little sentiment onto a parchment circle

One super easy to make card that can sit in my "To Send" folder until needed 

On another note ... have you noticed the new award in the left hand side bar ?? I have been awarded this because I am at #18 in the Top 100 YouTubers for card making. What an honour and no one was more surprised than me ... but really happy in the process !!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  12. Hello Christina,
    Great different take on embossing, colouring in and leaving "open" spaces. We all need inspiration now and again so thanks.
    Congratulations on your award, but I'm surprised you weren't higher as your videos always give great detail but are not laborious.
