Focus on Background Stamping

 Hello friends.  I have 2 cards to share today that I made for The Flower Challenge - Focus on Background Stamping.


I was inspired by a lady's blouse at church Sunday.  It was navy with open white flowers that  reminded me of SU Cheerful Daisies I just received.  That is an outline image and a fill-in image in the large flower and the small flower.  I just used the fill-in stamps and embossed them in white on a navy background.

I made the one with the large flowers first and then added a sentiment on a white strip punched with a border punch.  The blouse did not have anything in the flower centers but I dressed my flowers up with some fancy rhinestone gems from Hobby Lobby.  I liked the final result but thought I would also try it with the small bloom.

I added plain rhinestones to the centers of these blooms. I die cut the navy panel down to 5-1/4 x 4 to show the white card base and to bring in more of the white.  I die cut the edges of the sentiment strip with a small scallop die and added small rhinestones to it.   I used the same sentiment from a retired SU set on both cards

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
