Inkadinkado Background Stamp "Letter"
I bought my first background stamp, it's by inkadinkado called "Letter" and I love it, here is a link to a photo of the stamp, http://inkadinkado.eksuccessbrands.com/Product/Letter.aspx. I made these two cards using it and love how the stamp looks. I used Tim Holtz walnut distress ink on glossy white paper to stamp the image and then embossed it, then I used his Adirondack alcohol inks over the whole page to give it the antique look. I used a 1 1/2" circle punch over the SU modern label punch to form the label and the journey tag is used with the MM Tag Curler. Here I used the stamp with white colorbox ink and white embossing powder, it really looks so much nicer in person, love the white on white. The flower was made again using the SU word window punch. I used the stamp with black ink and embossed and then punched out 4 punches and glued them to form the flower, punched a 3/4 circle and embossed with the CB Swiss Dot Folder for the center and then snipped a V on the tips of the flower petals. The swirl stem is from Home Decor, it was left over from another project. The SU word window and SU modern label punches were used for the label.
