I'm cleaning out my craft supplies and digging up things that I haven't used for a while. My big background birthday stamp from impression obsession certainly needed some love (or ink)! So I made a card with it:
I made it based on the Muse at CASE study challenge:
Oh wow! Shari Carroll's card is absolutely gorgeous! I like how she stamped the bold image twice one on a colored cardstock with another background image and one on bottom layer. The cut windows on the top layer shows peeks of the stamped image in the bottom layer. How fun!
I tried to do it in a similar fashion. I first white heat embossed the big background image on a white cardstock, then on a lagoon cardstock. I then die cut the stars on the lagoon panel. I wanted to have some orange peeking through so I used Spiced Marmalade distress inks to color those areas beneath the stars. Finally I added some bakers twine to finish it off.
After I have taking a picture for this post, I keep thinking about modifying the card. I untied the bow and tied it back. I wanted to trim down the panel and offset it on a card but didn't have the courage to cut it apart. I guess many of us go through this struggle when we finish a card? Eventually I decided to leave it as is. Who knows? A day or two later I may come back to modify it. Hahaha~
I'm linking up my card to the following:
