Darkroom Door's Fabulous Background Stamps!

Greetings! It's Tuesday, which means that it's Kathi here to share some cards with you!

This week my TFS teammates and I are sharing projects using Darkroom Door's Background StampsThese stamps are sized to fit an A6 card as a background, so you can use them to create your own custom patterned paper, trim the backgrounds down to fit a tag, or use for an A2 card.

I do love the versatility of these fabulous backgrounders, so much so that I've got two cards to share with you!

Here's the first card, which is a modified Spotlight card, using Darkroom Door's Butterflies Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp and my oft-used, and clearly beloved, Wellbeing Stencil.

For this card, the Butterflies Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp was inked with Memento ink, then stamped onto sky patterned paper. A ring die was used to cut a framed circle from the center of the paper and from blue cardstock. The butterflies in the circle were colored with Copic markers, then the blue ring and the colored butterfly circle was adhered in place. It looked kinda dull to me, so I pulled out my beloved Wellbeing Stencil and sponged blue Memento ink over the  words "serene", "quiet calm", "time out", and "peaceful" onto the card front, then colored the butterflies that sat over the words. I was going to add a butterfly die-cut to the card, but decided less was more, and just adhered the image panel to a blue card.

Memento ink was used to ink the Buttons Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp and stamped onto ivory cardstock. Two blue Copic markers were used to color between the buttons on the background as well as the buttons' holes. 

A dressform die was used to cut heavy cardstock and silk-finish specialty paper. The cardstock version was colored with dark grey Copic markers. The silk-finish specialty paper was trimmed and then stamped with the Fun Flowers Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp using StazOn ink. 

Post-It notes were used to cover the words surrounding "one of a kind" on the stamp, the stamp was inked with StazOn, and the sentiment was stamped onto the silk-finish specialty paper. The sentiment panel was die-cut with a fishtail banner die and stitches were added with a stitch die. 

The background panel was matted with the same silk-finish specialty paper, then mounted onto a blue card. The dressform and the sentiment were adhered to the card.
