Description: 123 Backgrounds - Butterflies and Kaleidacolor Ink Pads
Stamp Set Used: 123 Backgrounds - Butterflies Set and Cornflower from Blockheads.
I used the Riviera pad for this example. In the first image I simply inked and stamped the background texture 4 times, twice mostly off the page. In the next step I inked the flower stamp and stamped it twice and finally in the 3rd step I inked the butterfly stamp 3 times using just the blues and purples and stamped it. I'm showing a 4th and optional step here of adding some color to the white areas of the background using a stipple brush. I used the same ink pad and some JudiKins color dusters to add a little more yellow to the overall look. It's that simple and you can make a background to match any color theme you're working in.
Here is another very different look using the same stamps to create a background using VersaMagic Ink. Details on this card are provided in this blog post: JudiKins Eclipse for Creating Masked Areas.
Love and Hearts stamp set.
