Before we begin with Jo’s fabulous background tutorial. Our Background Basics Lines Giveaway is still going on. Leave a comment here for a chance to win this fabulous stamp set! Deadline is June 14.

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to today’s blog post. I think you all are getting to know me well enough to know that I love creating my own backgrounds and finding ways on what stamps to use to help stretch them that little bit further.

For the background I have placed all the Background Lines stampset on one huge acrylic block which I stamped twice on the white cardstock to cover the whole piece of cardstock. I blended each cardstock with the same colour ink that was used to stamp the stripes.

I also blended the inner circle stitched die cut & small tag the same shade of the distress inks.

Each dear & sentiment has been stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink which has been coloured in with the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Each colours are listed below.

To finish off the card I have accented with enamel dots.

Hope you enjoyed today’s blog post and don’t forget to come over and visit my blog and say Hi – http://joanneherbert.blogspot.com.au/
