It's all in the background


Carol has chosen this weeks Stampotique theme of backgrounds using stamps.  This theme is right up my street as I love to use stamps to create the background as well as the main image.

Shock, horror, I haven't used any Stampotique stamps on this tag, even though I have quite a healthy collection of them now.  But with the news rules they have introduced, you can use any make of stamps, so I used various Tim Holtz images.

The background was created using the marbling technique with the distress stains.

Marbled stains are a b----er to get right and you've nailed them here. Would love to know which colours you have used as they are just dreamy together. Perfect stamping too. Have a great weekend, hugs Buttons x
