Sweet Stamps Stamped Background challenge



  This week at the Sweet Stamps Challenge we are making cards with Stamped Backgrounds.


  I used Ranger Distress inks on the background and then stamped over the background with the Baroque Border Stamp. (The image is stamped three times on the background- hard to see the top and bottom though).  I stamped the Pixie Silhouette image in Tumbled Glass then embossed with Clear EP. The white BG was too stark, so I dabbed on some Dried Marigold. I put 1/4" Scor Tape around the edge of the image with a small edge of it sticking out over the edge. I used clear glass microbeads that were colored with a Copicmarker (yellow) which stuck to the exposed adhesive- the adhesive on the backside of the panel helped adhere it to the background. 
  The brads in the corners are Candi legless brads painted in Turquoise Creative Inspirations Paint.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
