Mixing It Up - Easy Way to Use Background Stamps
Welcome back!  I've got a cool and easy way to use background stamps and with the awesome collection of them at Miss Ink I'm having lots of fun!
I started with a white panel of cardstock and swiped it with anti static powder.  I stamped that beautiful Holly Jolly image onto it with Versamark and heat embossed it in purple.
Then I blended some Distress Oxides in Chipped Sapphire, Faded Jeans and Wilted Violet.  Then to lighten up the snowy areas, I used a paintbrush to brush on some water in those areas and blotted it off with a paper towel to lighten it up.
I splattered water all over the panel and blotted it off.  I also splattered on some white glittered paint.  Finally I added Nuvo glitter gel on the posts where the snow is and then along the ground.  Finally I dotted some all over but just dabbing the tip randomly to add some sparkle.
While I waited for everything to dry, I stamped, cut and colored the images from Little Angel and Springtime Banners and arranged them onto the base.  Then I stamped the sentiment from Thankful and fussy cut the Thankful word and cut the remainder into a strip.  Then I adhered the sentiment strip onto the card and popped the sentiment onto the top.  I love the way the image really drops into the snowy night.
That's me for today!  I'm loving playing with these backgrounds like this and hope you'll give it a try!  Thanks so much for stopping and hope you'll come again soon for more Miss Ink Stamps inspiration!
