Impression Obsession Product Focus: Background Stamps

The Impression Obsession team has some projects to share today featuring our Cover-A-Card background stamps! If you're not familiar with these stamps, they are red rubber cling mounted stamps, measuring 5.75" x 5.75"- they are perfect for use on mini slimline and A2 cards in either landscape or portrait format. There are hundreds of designs to choose from - around 80 of those are mine!

I used 2 Cover-a-Card stamps on this card. My background panel started with a gel printed sheet of coated paper - I stamped the  Rainbow Scales background over it and embossed clear for a resist technique. Interestingly, the ink I used to brush over the panel started reacting with whatever I had used for the print and it lifted. I tried a few different colors and kept blending until it evened out, then brayered a little white acrylic paint on the raised image to lighten the pattern.

I stamped another background on the cross panel, and inked the edges to lessen the contrast on the white cardstock. The Pooh die cut is watercolored with some additional Copic texture.

I added about 100 cards to my sale page on Facebook today - quite a lot of them are catalog samples, challenge cards and tutorial samples. Come take a peek HERE if you're interested! If you'd like something similar to one that has already sold, let me know that too and I will do my best to recreate it!
