I've had many emails this week as to how I stamped the background of this Layout, so I thought I would shed some extra light on the details of this Layout, and the techniques I used to create it.
Using the Free Range Add on... and the More color add on
I picked out the colors and background paper that I wanted to use. I used my Tim Holtz ruler and a pencil to draw even lines spaced an inch apart. Then I simply stamped across each line with this color ink
After the ink was dry, I used my white eraser to take erase the penciled lines
For the outside borders, I used different patterned paper from the kit with different techniques. I used one of my border edge punch, and the fun lace tape that is in the kit. I also love to wet down my papers to get them to mold how I would like them to when they dry, so I did that along the edge to show a little smidge of the patterned paper on the backside.
For the Flowers, I punched out circles using 3 different size circle punches starting with the 3 inch punch. Then I wet the paper to crinkle them up and stacke them together. To finish off the flowers, I used the cute chipboard accent flowers with some jute to tie it all in together. :)
I hope this sheds some input on some new fun ideas to impliment in your own creations to try and play around with.
Have a great Thursday! xx
