Background Whimsy by Judy Jackson

This retired floral background stamp from Stampin' Up! lends itself beautifully to this technique. As soon as I saw and read the directions, I immediately thought of this stamp. Does that ever happen to you?
This technique is an easy way to add color, interest, and design to many background stamps. A high quality white gel pen is a must for this technique.
The fancy label is made using a Spellbinders die cut and the stamp is from SU. The flower accent is created by using several layers of punched out card stock spritzed with glimmer spray and attached with a brad in the middle of the flower. The leaves were cut out with a leaf die cut from Quickutz. That is a quick and easy way to create an embellishment custom made for your card.
Have a terrific week!
