Today's card was about creating my own background by using one stamp from the Lovely Romance Stamp set. Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig I created this great design. To make sure the design did not get too overwhelming I stamped off every other stamp to alternate the intensity of the Old Olive ink on the Very Vanilla card stock. If you look closely you can see the variation in the color.
Here is a photo of the Lovely Romance Stamp Set, all the stamps are beautiful:
Once the background was complete I wanted to add a splash of color. Using the color palette from the Etcetera DSP as my guide, I added Calypso Coral ribbon (retired) and then stamped the sentiment with Brown Sugar ink on a piece of Etcetera DSP. I also used Etcetera DSP to line the envelope.
I think the result is unique yet classic. I would love to hear what you think?
