What's Up Wednesay- Background Stamps

Hello Everyone! It's Amber here with my first What's Up Wednesday Post. I don't know about you but I love to create my own background paper using stamps. So today I thought I would share this card that I created with Paper Wings Productions Text Cling Background Stamp and Earth & Sky Cling Stamp Set. Check It:

There are many different ways to create your own background paper such as...stamping a fun image multiple times, using a gradient watercolor wash in a beautiful color scheme, or taking a large or small background stamp and repeatedly stamping it like I did today. To add texture and dimension to my card I used a technique called tone on tone stamping. To achieve this technique all you have to do is use a ink pad that is the same color or very similar to the card stock you are using.

We would love to see what you make with Paper Wings Productions Stamps so add your projects to our Flickr Group, to Pinterest, or leave a comment with a link to your project. Thanks for visiting today!
