Happy Mail Swap-totally stamping

(1/8) > >>

Far North:
I hope Artsy Inkers have time to play in 1 more Happy Mail card swap before school schedules alter everyone’s summer routine. 

Swap--I am happy to share Yana Smakula’s video for stamping a simple and fast card.  Please use the background method as inspiration for this challenge and change up at least one element of Yana’s final card to make it your own.  As always you can adapt the challenge as desired. In this case you may want to change the stamp theme to leaves or seashells or something else.  The inks & colors are totally your choice.  Here is the link to Yana Smakula's blog that freatures this technique:

Far North:
So glad you will be giving the technique a whirl April!

In my first run through of my stamps I didn't find any larger flowers with this type of image.  So I tried a couple 2" stamps.  They worked fine but the smaller images required me to use 6 different colors resulting in a very colorful background.  I am going to look for some other combos.
As always the stamping is quick...but the experiments take some time. Hope you have fun!

I am going to take a chance and sign up before I watch the video.  Thanks for organizing!

Far North:
Thanks Heidi for joining in the fun of trying a new technique!
