Ombre Background - Towards the Sunshine

Hello Ladies,
If you feel intimidated by stamping backgrounds, fear no more. One stamp and an ombre ink pad are all you need. By using an ombre ink pad with multiple colors you can create a rich background full of depth. With each new inking of the stamp, re-position it and rotate it to a new angle when stamping it to paper. You can create stunning backgrounds with little effort that make even a beginner seem like an expert.


Blank Page Muse Stamps: 
  • Ombre ink pad
  • Dark blue ink pad
  • Gems
  • Liquid adhesive
Directions:
1. Select a small flourish stamp to create a complete background by repeatedly stamping the same design to fill the paper. Alter the angle and placement of each new image. Ink the stamp in various places around the ink pad so that each new impression is a mix of slightly different colors than the last.

2. Stamp the encouraging quote using blue ink unto white cardstock and matte with blue cardstock.  Stamp two butterflies onto white cardstock and carefully cut them out. 

3.  Next, adhere the quote to the center of the card base and adhere the butterflies diagonally across each corner of the quote. Finally, embellish the butterflies with small gems to create their bodies.
