Background Stamping | Waltzingmouse Sketch 111


I'm holding on to the last few days before the kiddos go back to school. Trying to fit it all into our schedule during this last weekend before school starts. Obviously, I don't want them to go back for selfish reasons of my own, but what's a mom to do? 

Before I head out for this weekend's last summer hurrah, I wanted to share a card I created for the new sketch posted over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog.

This time the sketch calls for using your stamps to create a background. I decided on a floral background with a pink, green, and aqua color palette. Yum!

I used the Big Blooms Poinsettia set to randomly stamp the flowers and leaves around the corners of my card followed by the label from Very Vintage Labels No. 4 and a sentiment from Afternoon Tea Sentiments. 

And since I love texture on my cards, I added some fabric trimmings, twine, and buttons. 

To play along with us and create your own card based on this week's sketch, gather your favorite Waltzingmouse stamps to create a backgound and link it up over at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge blog.
