This is such a fun technique to try - and I have learned from a couple of efforts that you cannot use highly detailed background stamps for this technique. The background needs to have some detail but not highly detailed. This background from Cornish Heritage Farms is almost too detailed. The tree stamp is also from CHF. This card is an example of using an existing ATC I created for a swap months ago. When I make ATCs for swaps I always make a few extra for this very purchase.
I am looking forward to the next newsletter - only a short time now until Pat mails it! It will be filled with wonderful techniques as usual.
Hope your summer has some craft time included!
