After watching Dawn McVey's video post on how to create backgrounds using the PTI stamps I sat down and created a whole buch of different patterns on various scraps of cardstock. I decided to stick with a monochromatic theme using Lavendar Moon and Plum Pudding. I used the following stamps sets: Damask Designs, Background Basics: Diamonds, Background Basics: Hearts, and Birthday Basics. I also went a little old school and pulled out a template that I bought when I first began making cards. Remember when this style was so HOT! Sometimes going back and using some old techniques isn't so bad.
Here's a fuzzy close up. I took this so you could see the shimmer! It is a products called Bliss Mist Radiant Shimmer at a local stamp store in Canon City, CO when visiting my mom; I used Purple Passion on these cards.
