Our Daily Bread designs "For the Love of....Background Stamps" Blog Hop!

Happy Thursday, everyone!!! It's time for another Alumni Team Blog Hop....the theme this time around is "For the Love Of.....Background Stamps!" Since this week is Our Daily Bread designs' 4th Anniversary, we are incorporating some items associated with 4th anniversaries.....colors of topaz or aqua, flowers, fruit, linen, silk, etc., along with ODBD Background Stamps. Along with a Prima Flower and the color blue, I am using the following Background Stamps: It Is Well With My Soul and Small Bird Background:





For my sample below, the Small Bird Background was stamped on Very Vanilla with baby blue ink using the MegaMount stamp block, then the hymn was overstamped in black. After tearing the edges and sponging with espresso brown and baby blue ink, the panel was layered on espresso brown cardstock. At this point it really needed a pop of color, so I added some Ruby Red ink using an air-spritzer tool to match the Prima Flower and dew drops in the top corner. The corner flourish is the "Victorian Romance Flourish" by Cheery Lynn Designs...though it looks black in the photo, the flourish was cut from Early Espresso (brown) cardstock to match the mat. When finished, several layers of "Pearl" Glimmer Mist were added for some sparkle.

If you've ever been to my gallery at ODBD or Splitcoast, you will see that I love to use Our Daily Bread designs' Background Stamps as the main focus of many projects. With such great backgrounds, especially the hymns, I just can't bear to cover them up!!

Angie, this is a whole new technique for me -- using a BG stamp on a BG stamp! Think of the possibilities! I love the soft blue and the pop of poppy!

Vickie O'Dell said...

What a nice way to use the hymn background. It's still the focus, but using the other background stamp adds more interest, and keeping your other embellishments in the corner is great, too. Thanks for sharing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Angie...You are so creative! Thank you for sharing the idea of using two background stamps on one card...in one area with us! I don't have any bg stamps, and I certainly wouldn't have thought of using them in this beautiful way. Now, I can't wait to buy some ODBD background stamps! More tutorials on uses please!
