Creating stamped backgrounds using sentiments...


Hello! Today's post features cards I made for the Free 4 All challenge on SCS.  The challenge was to create a background on your card, by repeatedly stamping sentiments.   I hadn't done this in ages!  It was so much fun, I made two cards.


The second card uses stamps from Melody Ross's Domestic Bliss kit by Unity.  I used two different color pink inks for the cake, and then lined some hot pink Kaiser pearls between the two layers.  My background panel was created using the "eat cake" sentiment.  I distressed all of the paper using Old Paper distress ink.

The second card is for the Moxie Fab Monochromatic color challenge.  You can see the colors below:
The Bazzill equivalents are Bubblegum, Precious, and Pinkini.

Thanks for stopping by!

Both of these are terrific, Emily. But I gotta say, I'd have given up stamping the background on the first one. That looks hard!! But you did a super job of persevering and got a GREAT result. :)

This is a great idea.. I would have never thought of this. It is a super way to use more of your stamps. Love these Emily.

These are beautiful! I love using this technique, which is probably why I never use patterned paper! LOL
