Dotty background stamping

Dotty background stamping with a muted rainbow

I shared a card with you the other day where I created my own patterned paper with a few small stamps from the Abundantly Blessed Sentiment stamp set. I enjoyed it so much, that I thought why not use the small stamps again! This time, I just focused on the small dots, and to celebrate the release of the Zen Garden inks in Mini pads, I used them for the colours.  This created a beautiful muted rainbow for my card.

Dotty background stamping

Dotty background stamping: creating the rainbow

When creating a background with several stamps, it is much quicker to use acrylic blocks. Add the three small dot stamps from the Abundantly Blessed sentiment stamp to acrylic blocks

Start off stamping on a white card panel with Rose Petals ink in all three sizes of dots. Then switch to the next colour in the collection as you move down the card. Make sure you allow the different colour dots to mix for a blended look. 

Dotty background stamping: adding the sentiment

Trim your card panel down and adhere to a white cardbase. Heat emboss in WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder on to black cardstock the block ‘Blessed’ sentiment from the stamp set. Trim this down and foam mount onto the front. 

Finish the card off by stamping directly onto the card panel a smaller sentiment from the stamp set. With all the dots in the background, this card does not need an embellishment!
