Background Stamping

 I've got a card to share with you today- and it all started with a cool background stamp. And... the challenge at JustRite Stamps is to use a great technique with background stamps - so here it is!  I decided to make some paper blooms to correspond with some of the stamped  images.  I also added some fun mixed media techniques - so I've got a tutorial to share with you, how I created this piece.


Start with WorldWin Papers new Parchment paper.  This already created some texture and depth.  
Use a mask and spray Art Anthology's Fern Leaf Colorations.

Position the mask to spray the un-inked areas with the Guacamole Colorations.

 Outline around some of the diamonds using a gold Sharpie marker.

Stamp the French Rose background stamp with watermark ink and heat emboss with a brown powder.  Use a paintbrush and the Colorations sprays to paint the areas of the design within the embossed lines.
Die cut a frame from WorldWin's Kromekote copper and emboss.
Rub some Art Anthology Velvet paint in Lagoon over the copper frame to give it an oxidized appearance.

Die cut flowers and shape them on a foam mat.

Add a little Art Anthology Sorbet (Dazzle) on the flower petals to give a little glittery effect.

Spray a little bit of the Vineyard Colorations on your work mat, and dip the tips of the petals in this.

Stamp the Elegant Fronds stamp on the DoubleMates (Berry Red) cardstock. Cut rolled flowers from the stamped paper.

Put the card together as shown.
