Uncovering Things

Hello.  Welcome.  Trying to tidy the craft room again.  You are probably getting tired of hearing about it.  I know I am getting tired of the 'trying' and really should get onto the 'tidy'!  But I always find things that distract me!!  I did find a few things that I had promised to people so Becca, the card is on it's way, and Claire, a little something winging it's way in your direction.  I also almost dug out a whole desk!  I feel a sense of accomplishment.  So, as a reward, I decided to play along with MFT's Camp Create Stunning Shadow Stamping.

OMG!!  I'm in love with this technique!!!  So cool.........

Here's my card.  Isn't that just the coolest background!!

I started with a bazzill dots jade card base.  I stamped the tartan stamp from Inspired by Stamping Background Basics IV set multiple times across the card using white dye ink.  Then I repeated the stamping using Pine Needles distress ink and slightly offsetting the stamping.  Love the dimension.  

Then it all went a bit twilight zone and I coloured my Prima doll with many shades of green and added a VLVS sentiment.  

Thanks for dropping by.  And really, if zombies chase us I am tripping you...... Hugz

  2. Lol! Fun sentiment!!!! That bg stamping technique is awesome:):) Gotta love those Nutting dolls, too!!!!

  3. Oh my what an awesome background it looks 3D. I love this. I have done similar with a stencil and white ink and then off setting the stencil and going over it again with a lighter shade of the background or you can even use white again as it does give more of a shadow. I love your look and so glad you did this so I could see what a stamp could do. Thanks for sharing over at Creative with Stamps.
