Thank You Card With Stamped Background

I'm Card Captain of the enjoyMichaelStrongstamps Yahoo Group for this week, so for 5 days I'll be showing you several works using Michael Strong's stamps. I hope you'll find them inspiring.

My 4th card for this week is a Thank You Card With Stamped Background.

I used Michael Strong's Cloisonné Hummingbird stamp (small) from the Mini Wings set.
I also used a Hebrew stamp which shows the Dictionary definition of Todah (i.e. Thank You).

The technique is simple and fun.
You can create your own stamped background pages, and they'll never look the same.
Also, each piece you'll cut out of your page will look different.

To create your own background page, all you need is several different stamps and several ink pads in various colors.
You start by choosing one stamp, stamping it randomly here and there on your page, using one ink color.
Then you do the same thing again, using another stamp and another ink color every time.
You stamp all over the page, in the gaps between the already stamped images, until you're happy with the result – a background page uniquely created by you!
Now you can cut pieces of your page and use them for backgrounds, to create any card or art project you desire... a unique one.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed. Have a creative day! Dorly


  1. A great technique, with a lovely result, Dorly
    I've learned it years ago, but forgot all about it.
    There are so many new techniques all the time . . .

  2. Love your background Dorly, I don't think I use that technique nearly enough - complements the focal image so nicely.

  3. Lovely card and interesting background. Thanks for the great technique.

  4. What a great background you made. Love the color of the bird. The layout so nice with the bird just over the sentiment. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Beautiful card,Dorly, with great background technique.

  6. So pretty, Dorly! What a fun technique. Thanks for sharing!!!
