Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

I once again redid a Thanksgiving card shown here and made it into a Christmas card. I used the same set of stamps Stately Flowers 5 by Melanie and the same technique. I made my background for the images and sentiment by taking an acrylic block and rubbing Momento Pear Tart ink all over it and then spritzing it with water and stamping that down onto the white card stock. I then took a heat gun and dried it well before I added the stamped images and sentiment with Gina K. Designs black ink. I colored my images in with my Bic Mark-It markers which are alcohol type inks. I finished the card by layering it onto red card stock and adding a ribbon before I adhered it to the white base card.

Love that background technique. It looks so pretty with the berries falling off the mistletoe.

Super background technique, reminds me of the masking tape one--only bigger!  Great card!
