A Patchwork of Love...and January's Challenge Winner!

Hi BPM Fans!!

We're already into another month for 2020! Can you believe it?

Our theme this month is using multiple stamps - hope you are going to play along with our challenge and show us how you can use lots of yummy rubber stamps on your creations! Use at least 3 real rubber or clear stamps, no digis.

I've made this romantic card - perfect for this Valentine's month! 
Remember way back when this was a technique for creating a card background with stamps? It's fun to play around with the "old" way of stamping haha - I always thought this was an effective way to create a background!

Hope you feel inspired to have a go!


Supplies:
White Card Base
Sticky Note Pad
Ink Pads & Sponge for adding Colour
Dark Coloured Ink Pad for Stamping

Instructions:
Use your sticky notes to create a "frame" in the middle of your card front as shown below in the picture.


Use your sponge or applicator and cover the exposed card with ink.


Using your choice of stamp and a dark ink pad stamp onto the coloured square.


Repeat the above steps over the rest of the card front changing your ink colours and stamps!


You will end up with a patchwork looking card front which is perfect on it's own or you can add a feature stamp to the front or even just a bold sentiment!


A main feature stamp was added to the card as an option to add more interest: Romance Classic Couples used for this card. Lots of possibilities for adapting your card to any occasion!


Thanks for joining me today - hope you will play along with our challenge this month - we can't wait to see what you create!
Make sure you pop back here to the blog to get some more inspiration from the DT!!!

Happy stamping!

Sharon
