Here are the 34 more card swaps that I made for OnStage last Saturday. I used the Swirly Bird and Cottage Greetings Stamp Sets. It is a sense of accomplishment when I see a photograph of all the swaps together.
I wanted to use the Swirly Bird Stamp Set as a background image. It took a bit of thought, but I managed to come up with a simple way to create a unique background.
I used the solid circle image and inked it up in the Blushing Bride Ink Pad and dragged it randomly across the Whisper White Cardstock.
Again, I used the solid circle image and inked it up in the Soft Suede Ink Pad. I stamped off the image on scratch paper and then dragged it randomly across the Whisper White Cardstock. If you don't stamp off with the Soft Suede Ink Pad, it will be too dark. This looks like a hot mess. Right? I thought the same thing when I created the first card.
Now, stamp the swirl image in the Soft Suede Ink Pad and randomly stamp it on top of the hot mess. Magically, the hot mess disappears and you have a one-of-a-kind background.
Attach a 3/4" x 4" piece of Blushing Bride Cardstock at the top of the background with SNAIL Adhesive. Add the sentiment from the Cottage Greetings Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink. The final touch is three Pearls. Voila! A fun and unique background that is simple to create.

I woke up to a dusting of snow this morning and it is now melted. Yes! I have Stamp Club here tonight and didn't want to deal with an icy driveway. Have a thrilling Tuesday!!!
