SKETCH 51: BACKGROUND STAMPING


Good morning, and welcome to Limelight Papercrafts' 51st Sketch and Product Challenge! Today we are excited to focus on BACKGROUND STAMPING, and we hope you'll join in the fun with us! :) One lucky winner will receive a Stampendous single stamp of their choice, after all!!
I really love how my card turned out...I don't usually use orange and blue, but I like them together. :) I started with kraft cardstock for my card base and background stamping piece. I stamped a couple of the flowers from the Lawn Fawn set Petite Florals (Are you noticing how much I love this stamp set?!?) using PTI's Tea Dye ink in Chai. I die cut my three butterflies using SU dies (Beautiful Butterflies and Beautiful Wings) out of TaDa Hoop De Doo patterned paper. The two patterns represent both sides of this patterned paper. The middle butterfly is accented with Ice Blue Rhinestones. The Pumpkin Pie panel simply features the sentiment. I stamped this sentiment, from the Unity July store kit, using Dark Chocolate ink. I accented a few random letters by stamping them onto Aqua Mist cardstock, cutting them out, and adhering them over the Pumpkin Pie letters. What a great birthday sentiment. ;)


The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate some BACKGROUND STAMPING!!
**Keyword for SCS upload is LLPC051.
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on the challenge post by Sunday, July 11, at midnight (or really just before winner is drawn Monday!).

My son Joel made this card for the challenge. He's too young to have his own Blogger account, so I'm posting it for him. Here is his card:
