It's day four of my week as the Growing In Unity Girl, and it has been awesome! For today's project, I wanted to highlight background stamps. Unity has some GREAT background stamps! In fact, I subscribe to the Background of the Month membership and they are great! I chose the background stamp "Coming Up Roses" because I was inspired by a co-workers shirt, lol! It is funny where inspiration comes from, isn't it? I loved the little roses on her shirt and the color combo and how the colors popped, so I immediately thought of this background stamp.
I wanted to color the roses with Copic markers, so I needed to use a ink that would work with alcohol markers. Since I wanted pink and yellow roses, I chose to stamp the roses with pink and color them yellow. Memento Ink has a wide assortment of colors, so I chose to use Rose Bud for this project. Using my Misti Stamp Positioning Tool, I stamped the background stamp on a card panel of 110lb Neenah Solar White cardstock with the Rose Bud ink to make sure that I get a nice and even stamped image. The Misti is a great tool for background stamps! Once the ink was dry, I colored the roses with Copic colors Y08, Y04 and Y00. For the sentiment, I chose to use the Sending Smiles die from Simon Says Stamp so I cut the sentiment out three times out of Daffodil Delight cardstock from Stampin Up. I then glued the pieces on top of each other to add depth using Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue. After I glued the pieces together, I thought it needed a little something extra, so I decided to top the sentiment with Glossy Accents from Ranger. I love this stuff! After the Glossy Accents dried, I then glued the sentiment onto the card panel and added some enamel dots in the coordinating colors of the card. I then popped the card panel onto a 110lb white card base with foam tape. I used 3M Scotch foam tape that I bought from Amazon.
This is a simple card to make and I love that design inspiration can come from anywhere, even a co-workers shirt!
