I have been playing with stamping inks and decided I wanted to try creating a patterned paper design. I took a piece of cream card stock and just started stamping the different colored inks all over to create a pattern that I liked. Then embossed the tree on top of the patterned paper. Matted that on the maroon then found a paper to mat those on. Took a blank card, found a scrap of darker paper then staamped the card and darker strip with darker stamping inks to compliment the colors under the tree. Ended up with this card. Gotta love just going in and playing and figuring out how to do certain techniques. I think for a first attempt at using stamping inks to create a pattern, it came out ok! Any suggestions or comments are appreciated!
