A DIY Stamp..

Hi! One of my favourite type of stamps are the background stamps. I especially love the Impression Obsession cover a card range. But there is another, easy option if you don't have suitable background stamps. You can make your own out of fun foam! Here are two cards that I made with a DIY background stamp.

I used the Fancy Butterfly die by Impression Obsession to cut several butterflies cut from a sheet of foam and mounted them on a 7" x 7" piece of sun board covered with thin double sided tape. Here is the stamp.

For the other stamp I used a Cuttlebug die.

I covered the stamp with white acrylic paint and stamped on a piece of watercolor paper. Once the paint was dry, I smooshed the panel with pink and blue acrylic paints. I ended up with a panel large enough to make two cards.

And the second card

Both the sentiments are from the Persian Motifs set by Altenew. I heat embossed them with black EP on strips of vellum.
