Papertrey Ink birthday card

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to Jill who is a new follower this week. As I mentioned yesterday, I have signed up for the on line card class 'Stretch your Stamps' and the first day was about using background stamps in a variety of ways. I was inspired by Lisa Carroll to come up with this card:-


I don't have many large background stamps so I used  PTI A Little Argyle as a border,  embossed it in white and then used Copics to randomly colour in some of the diamonds. Its a little difficult to see in this picture but I also used a background stamp on the sentiment panel using Versamark ink.



It was a great start to the course and I look forward to learning lots of new things over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs

  6. Those colors in the diamonds give such amazing depth to the card. I love the little pearl "attaching" the tag too.
