Great idea to break up the BG with a solid CS. The white flowers really pop with the blues and I had to reread your instructions several times b/c I thought you had stamped the delicate flowers over the white flowers and I was trying to see how you did it w/o smearing! Great way to get same effect w/o smears!

TFS and great job both of you!!

You and your son both got great results! I like the background stamps you chose, both the bandana and the flowers. I love how you used your background cut on the diagonal (hey you can get two cards from it that way)! I also really like how it is a deeper blue in the corner. Nice job!

What a Beautiful winning card! Your technique came together wonderfully...Love the colors you chose. And so glad your son played along with you! I hope he shares it with someone special!

Super cards! Love the gems your son used and the diagonal design of yours.

It just goes to show how many different looks you can get with this technique. Love the colors and the "patterned" paper you created!

Both cards are fantastic! I have the bandana stamp and almost used it for this technique. I'm gonna have to try it now. Love the layout of your card it came out great! Your sons card is so cute! Love the sentiment in the middle. I will have to check out those goosebumps, I've never heard of them before. TFS :)

This was a tough challenge for me. I went through many many backgrounds before I got to the point where I thought they looked okay.

My card uses a Hero Arts Stitched Flowers background using yellow/honey/tea dye distress inks. I then used a Hampton Arts flower and heat embossed with clear powder. I inked over with 3 blue tone distress inks. Since the background is so busy, I cut it down to make the card and mounted it on Kraft card base.

My son used another background I made with a Stampendous Bandana stamp. I used denim/pumice stone and tea dye on the stamped image, then we picked green, blue and pumice stone to ink over the heat embossed flowers. He used some “Twinkle Goosebumps” gems from Queen And Co. to embellish. I really like these new gems!

Thanks for the challenge!
