If you've never stamped before, follow my tutorial to learn How To Stamp Artwork-Part 4 of 4. I used our La Belle Vie paper pack and started with Smokey Pum as my base page. With my Universal Backround stamp pictured above, I stamped the entire page. With our clear stamps, it makes it so easy to line up and see where you need to stamp next. What's nice about making your own B&T (background & texture) papers, even if something doesn't stamp perfect...it's a background, not your main focus to your page. Leave any imperfections there...that's what makes it unique, not manufactured!
I love the difference it made to my page!
I hope this gives you some ideas of how you can make your own B&T paper to give the extra touch you're looking for.
Thanks for stopping by...AND Happy Stamping!
