Last Weeks HA Background Stamping Challenge

Hi All, I am back today with last weeks HA challenge entries for background stamping. For my first card I found my old favorite Florentine Scroll Background stamp and used white StazOn and stamped it onto the two pieces of Raspberry Fizz card. I then created a background using another old favorite stamp of mine the Hibiscus Style Flower. The Happy Birthday is also from HA. I really liked the color combo of Raspberry Fizz, black and white so it came a theme for my cards for this challenge!

Below is a close up of the card. 

This second card I created I broke out some of my newer HA stamps that I just had to buy but had not got round to use!! The woodgrain stamp is from the Artistic Windows Set. I used a piece of the background I had created for the first card and also punched the butterflies from the same.

Another close up below of that lovely woodgrain and butterflies with little tiny silver pearls on them.

For this third card I wanted more white space! Again I used the scroll stamp from the Artistic Windows set and again punched the butterflies out of my own background paper and used a strip of the paper on the card.

Just a close up again of the main detail on the card. I really enjoyed making all of these cards and did them all in one afternoon. The ideas were just flowing :)

Hi, Beverley! I love how you used the flower stamp in the first card to make both a background and a focal element! :-)
