An Effortless Way To Create A Background for A Card | Challenge Time at Create A Smile

Have you ever felt that a Clean and Simple card looked completed with a created background? Wondering how to make your own background effortlessly?
Create a Background for A Card
Hello Everyone!
Today a new challenge starts at Create a Smile and we are challenging you to create your own background on your card.
To make my card I used Radio Rock stamps set from Create A Smile (SSS | CRT).

This is a recently released stamps set including a retro radio image focal stamp, accessory stamps - notes lines and notes, as well as several sentiments for different occasions.
Create a Background for A Card
There are at least five ways to make your own background:

  • Use a stencil, see an example HERE
  • Use small accessory stamps to make a randomly stamped pattern
  • Use bigger stamps, for example in a repetitive way
  • Use a background stamp to cover the whole card panel
  • Use a focal stamp, see an example HERE
 Today I created my own background with accessory stamps included in Radio Rock stamps set.

I stamped the focal image in light ink, then coloured it with pencils and masked.

Next I repeatedly stamped the notes line using the MISTI Tool.

To finish off my card I randomly stamped a small and a big notes signs in dark brown ink and also in embossing ink to heat emboss with gold sparkling powder.

The sentiment was stamped in black archival ink for crisp impression.
