kaleidoscope 1

It's been a while since I played with a background stamp. I'd forgotten how much fun they can be. Especially one this fabulous.

You may have noticed I'm using my Pinterest board for inspiration this month, and this photo totally inspired today's card.

See the B/W, blue and touch of gold? Check. (And did you notice those organic shapes? LOVE!)

A MISTI came home with me this summer and what a dream it is to stamp images without panic that the ink coverage won't be perfect. Especially with background stamps. Inked and stamped three times for this perfect coverage.

I platinum heat embossed a scrap of blue (be sure to use a large enough piece for some wiggle room if you want to make the pattern match up!) and die cut You which I adhered flush to my card. A platinum heat embossed secondary sentiment from Hello You completed my design.

I'm playing at:

Yay, you gave a home to a MISTI, Maria ... isn't it just brilliant! Your card is a stunner ... that background is indeed glorious ... and the rich metallics with that gorgeous blue in the sentiment make it shine! Hugs, Anita :)
