Creating my own backgrounds is one of my favorite ways to make my cards unique.
I love seeing what kind of background I can come up with by simply sitting and playing with stamps.
Today’s cards feature the Message in a Bottle stamp set from the new annual catalog.
Both cards feature the repeating pattern or repeat stamping technique.
In the Dad card I wanted to convey a gradient or an ombre look with both the letters and the background. Make sure you watch the video too see how I created that look using just one ink pad.
