Here's a card I made using CTMH's "A Garden," "Universal Backgrounds," and "Whooos Your Valentine" stamp sets. I also made Smoothie my color of choice--to meet the requirement for the Color My Heart color dare for this week.
I manipulated the flowers by bending the clear stamp in different ways and then stamping each way on the white square--giving the appearance of one stamp. MS Glitter Glue and White Applique added a little pizzazz to the stamped images.
To make the bit of color and pattern across the center of the card, I grabbed the first thing that I saw--a random sheet of lined paper. I tore it and laid it across the part of the Smoothie cardstock I wanted to ink. Then I stamped the background stamp twice and sponged across the open surface. When I lifted up the lined paper, the torn look remained in ink.
Usually I would use painter's tape for this type of masking, but this worked well--and even afforded me a larger area for the stamp to spill over on.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
