2 ways to use background stamps; MFT Stamps December Release Countdown



Welcome to the MFT Stamps December Release Countdown! For the next few days we will be sharing projects featuring the new stamps, dies, stencils, and colors that will be releasing this month. You will be able to purchase any of the products you see over the next few days on Tuesday, December at 9 pm Central.

As a card maker, having cute images and dies doesn't get any better, unless you can add in an equally fabulous background stamp! Watercolor Stripes Background is that stamp! Check out the two totally different ways that I have used the stamp. And the two totally different looks! I love when stamps are versatile! 

On my first card, I simply inked Watercolor Stripes Background with Summer Splash ink. The stamp itself has texture which creates a beautiful impression. Not intended to be solid, but to truly mimic a watercolor appearance. 

Adorable Elephants was once again calling my name. This time I cut watercolor paper with 
Die-namics Adorable Elephants and watercolored the image with Distress Markers and a paintbrush. (I stamped my image with Natural Hybrid Ink before coloring.) 

My second card is bright and festive and created with Watercolor Stripes Background as well! Isn't it great what you can create with stamps?!?

I trimmed a panel of watercolor paper. Then using Distress Markers, I colored each stripe in the image with a different marker. I lightly spritzed the entire image with water and then stamped the paper. Such a cool look! I was able to create a couple of panels of this background by simply spritzing a little more water on in between each stamping.


I finished the card off with a stamped sentiment from Amazing. Underneath, I added a piece of Black Licorice card stock that was cut with Die-namics Doubly Amazing
