Design Team member, Heidi, sharing an easy way to stretch your background stamps. I adore the Beach Unmounted Sheet stamp set and have been using it as much as possible lately. Here is the card and simple technique.
Take a sheet of copy paper and fold it so you can tear a random looking hole in it. I usually use a piece of junk mail. You can create a more regular shape using a die, too.
Then just ink up your background stamp (I used the Tattered Screen) and stamp over your home-made mask.
This irregular look is great for a collage look. I am such a fan of background stamps and love using them this way. I used light ink to mimic the look of a fishing net.
The shell was stamped and fussy cut, then I used irridescent chalks to color it. They blend so easily and add to the beachy feel. I stamped more images from the set onto my background and added the lovely new Voice of the Sea sentiment. Some Nuvo pearl drops were applied and then I was done.
Thank you so much for coming by today!
