New Techniques

In September, my mother-in-law and I went to a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo and went to a couple of JustRite Stampers workshops.  One of them was on background techniques, specifically combining background stamps.  We worked on making the background for this card:
The colors come from Gelatos and this is the first time I had given them a try.  I do like the look they give.  And there is even a bit of shimmer, which is fun!  Then we layered a second background stamp over both the background panel and the sentiment panel.  I might have to get me some of those Gelatos, it was pretty fun.
Stamps: JustRite Stampers "Crackle" background stamp, "Honeycomb" background stamp, "Retro Sparkle" background stamp; Verve "Peace On Earth" sentiment

Great background - and I love my gelatos just "forget" to get them out. I'm thinking you might have inspired me.
