Project - Patchwork Background
posted 04/17/13 at 09:30 AM
I wanted to use lots of background stamps on my card and ended up using twenty different stamps, most of them from Hero Arts. When I use distress inks or distress stains on my craft sheet, I often wipe up the remaining ink with scraps of watercolour paper, so I have a pretty big stash of these colourful papers. I like having them ready to use on a project. After taking out a pile of papers from my scrap folder, I die cut them into small squares. Each square was stamped with a different background stamp using a slightly darker shade of Distress Ink, for a tone-on-tone effect. I stitched with a zigzag stitch in between all the blocks. TFL!
