Hello and Welcome! Samantha here, and today I wanted to share a simple technique that I love to use to create larger backgrounds with smaller background stamps. I’ve picked a stamp set that goes perfectly with the Mermaid die so I hope its something you try out yourself!
Step 1: Stamp the scalloped imaged from Background Stamp 3 onto a white card front measuring 10.5cm x 14.5cm.
Step 2: Stamp the image again onto masking paper.
Step 3: Fussy cut the masked imaged, remove the adhesive backing sheet and adhere it to the first stamped image.
Step 4: Position the Scalloped image above the masked area and stamp the image using a different ink colour.
Step 5: Remove the mask.
Step 6: Place the mask over the last stamped scallop image and repeat steps 4 and 5 until the card front is completely stamped.
Step 7: Use a variety of coloured card stock to die cut the Mermaid die. Assemble the mermaid and adhere to the card front.
Step 8: Stamp the sentiment.
Step 9: Embellish the card front with sequins, and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.
Thanks for stopping by for today’s tutorial – I hope you try this technique out! It’s a lot of fun creating your own background and there’s many Elizabeth Craft Designs stamps you can try it with.
