Background Stamps + Tutorial

Hello and good morning! ^__^

I'm Halak and today I'll be taking you through a tutorial for projects using one of my favorite background stamps by Peek-a-boo Designs, the Quilted Love.

This stamp is not only great for Valentine's Day projects and love themed ones but also makes a great background for casual and fun projects.

So, let's get to the steps for this card!

The first thing I did was take purple cardstock and stamp Quilted Love with white pigment ink, randomly.

After this, I took the same stamp and on white cardstock, using distress inks, stamped repeatedly. (I went kinda crazy here, was having fun mixing the colors!) :D

So this is what it looked like. Pretty cool huh? I definitely will be doing more of these colorful backgrounds in the future!

Then, I took the pretty Chrysanthemum, colored it up and adhered to my colorful background.

You can see that big bloom (this was before I coated some of the petals in fine glitter) in the above picture where I was also trying to figure out the layout et al.

After this, I added a die-cut and some washi tape bits for that extra pop of color. Boom. Done!

I also made another project, check it out :

Super simple and great for those who do not like coloring, the background is made of pink and blue distress ink smooshed onto paper with the help of acetate.

Here's a photograph :

It is the first layer, but I kept building on color as I wanted a darker background.

Once it dried, I stamped Quilted Love in versafine, trimmed it and matted it against white cardstock. This is what it looked like before matting :

After that, stamped a couple of blooms from Lotus Delight on white cardstock, fussy-cut them and adhered to project.

Stamped sentiment, added sequins and some colorful washi tape. You can also add glitter to the flowers to jazz them up a bit!

That's about it folks! Hope you liked  the projects and they inspired you to create something new!

Have a lovely day! *Hugs*
