Wallpaper Stamping

Monday, July 28, 2014

What do you do when you're on the phone?
I pace, I doodle, I pluck my eyebrows {lol, I can't sit still}, and sometimes I come up with patterns....
I was poking the end of a pen into my hand and making this pattern out of circles and thought, "Hey, I'm going to try that on my next card!"
I used the small open circle from the original Polka Dot Basics stamp set.
Then I colored each circle with my Copics.
I stamped my sentiment over my background and embossed it with clear embossing powder to help it stand out.
This week's Make It Monday is focused on
stamping your own background or 'wallpaper'.
My wallpaper has a bit of a 70's flair to it.  Perfect for a young boy I think!

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week!

Cardstock: PTI White
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics, SS Birthday
Ink: Memento Black, Versafine Onyx
