Backgrounds Galore

Hello Everyone!!  If you've been following my blog for the last couple of weeks you would have seen many of the latest CHA release stamp sets, including new Background stamps!!  As much as I love a pretty image to colour, I've loved playing with these new backgrounds!!  Today's card hasn't used any DP at all --- all stamps!!!  :)

I've created my card with a base of purple bazzill and layered with white.  The next layer was another piece of white stamped with JustRite's Garden Gate Background stamp in Memento Teal Zeal.  To tone down this layer, I've airbrushed BG000 Copic Marker over the teal stamped background.  The next panel is white topped with another piece of white stamped with Floral Flourishes Background in Memento Lulu Lavender.  The flowers are from Circle of Love, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (V01, V12, V15, V17, G40, G43, G46, BG78).  It's been fussy cut and framed with white cut with Spellbinders Marvelous Squares.  Across the bottom I've added some white crochet lace, topped with white satin ribbon.  The sentiment is from Buntings and Banners set and has been stamped in Tuxedo Black and cut with Nested Lacey Pennants.  To finish I've added some pearls to the corners and a bow to the ribbon.

Makes me wonder why we don't make our own b/g dp as yours turned out beautifully Kathy. Love those layers and your flower is colored to perfection!

Honestly, your whole blog is a feast for the eyes. This one is stunning! I'm amazed with what you've done with the background stamp. Great color combo. I would have thought it was some gorgeous paper. Beautifully colored floral image, as well.
