Sweet Stamps Monthly Challenge- Stamp your own background paper

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this week is to stamp your own background paper.
    From the new Technique Junkies newsletter, I used a technique called Bands of Color- only I added stamping into the mix to qualify for the challenge.
  For the main image, I used a wax paper resist technique and three colors of Shades Die ink- Aegean, Buttercup and Forget-Me-Not.  I sponged on the color, and then added Fairy Dust Creative Inspirations paint some shimmer. I did my background technique, then stamped the background image in the same color on the 'band' of color.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:
Butterfly Fairy Image HERE
Bohemian Border image HERE
Just for You Sentiment HERE
Shades Die Ink HERE
Creative Inspirations Paint HERE
Coordinations Cardstock Lavendars HERE

Double Line Tape HERE
