And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Delightfully Delicate Background


Hello everyone!  Welcome back to DAY 2 of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps February Release Blog Hops!  
Today's Feature is:
Today the DT is thrilled to share the new Delightfully Delicate Background with you.  This gorgeous image is a seamless background stamp that can be used to make as large a background as you wish!  You'll love the dainty touch it adds to your projects!
  • Image measures approximately 3.75" x 3.75"
  • Stamp is $11
Here is a card I made with the beautiful 
Delightfully Delicate Background:

Creative Nugget:  The background is very subtle on this card as I tried a new mixed media technique.  It was clear embossed on mixed media paper and Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar, and Broken China Distress paints were applied over the whole panel.  Some Typewriter Text was lightly stamped on portions of the panel after it had dried.  Next, modeling paste was applied through a honeycomb stencil.  As that was drying, the flower from the Bloom & Grow stamp set was stamped on another panel.  The Delightfully Delicate Background was lightly stamped in Wild Honey ink around the edges of the flower.  Inka Gold was sponged on the modeling paste and around the edges of each panel.  A hand cut banner with one of the sentiments from the Bloom & Grow stamp set was added along with some ribbon, pearls, and a Majestic Monarch to finish the card.
