Good morning blog friends! I confess, it is no secret that I’m partial to background stamps! Recently I received a couple of background stamps from JustRite Papercrafts and besides the Fleurista Newsprint Background Stamp that I’ve used several times this month, I fell in love with the Heart Scroll Background Stamp. It’s huge and it has a very large motif with bold lines – I immediately wondered how it would look overstamped or combined with another background stamp. I experimented with colors and came up with a double stamped background that I really like. It’s an easy technique and I give you the 1, 2, 3 and additional pictures at the bottom of my post.
My card is a simple two layer card. I let the beauty of the double stamping show as much as possible.
I also used JustRite Papercrafts Summer Words for the sentiment. Both the flag and the heart in the upper left corner were cut using - Vintage Labels and Banner Dies
So in my mind the jury is in . . . because the Heart Scroll background has big bold elements – I think it will work in tandem with many of the other JustRite Stampers Backgrounds :-) You can click on the three thumbnails below to see the sequence to coordinating a double stamped background.,
1. Stamp your first background stamp with distress ink – when picking your two stamps be sure to test them before going on to the real thing. I try to pick a small print and a large print for the overstamping.
2. Stamp your second background stamp using embossing powder, then emboss with clear embossing powder.
3. Using a distress in sponge, smudge over the embossed cardfront using an ink of your choice. This is the resulting panel you’ll get.
