Easy Stamped Background

Well I'm back finally after almost a month of MIA.  I see a few of you have been faithfully checking in to see if there is anything new..... thanks for peeking in.

Sorry I haven't been posting for awhile but there were just so many things that had to be done around the property that I just didn't have the time for my favorite thing, which of course is sharing my ideas here with you.

I see that my posting called Clean and Simple-Acrylic block Stamping has had 214 page views since June 9th and I now see people are sharing this on their blogs too. That was one of my favorites and I have done some other things like that too, which I will show in another posting.

When I checked out the challenge at Color Throwdown #149 I saw that they wanted us to use Apricot Appeal, Red Ridinghood Red and Wild Wasabi and while thinking about what I would do it dawned on me that I could use the card that I taught in class last night but just change the colours soooo without saying too much more I will show you the card that I did using the required colours PLUS the card that I taught the night before.... so be sure to scroll down to the second one.

I used an old SU set called Bud Basics and stamped the black outline of the large flowers all over the piece then I used the solid stamp loaded with Apricot Appeal and stamped in the outline.
Then I used the leaf outline with black and stamped leaves close to the flowers, then loaded the solid leaf with Wild Wasabi and stamped in each leaf outline.
It is hard to see but I used the Red Ridinghood Red to fill in the rest of the background with the small outline flower.

Now here is the one I taught last night using  Really Rust,  Apricot Appeal, Cameo Coral, Old Olive and Garden Green. This one seems a little softer as I used the Cameo Coral for the background outline flowers.

Well I hope you like them and will come back for another visit soon.
