Default LSC38 - Backgrounds

Please remember to put LSC38 in the keyword box when you upload!

Theme: Backgrounds
Limit: stamps

Were you like me as a newbie stamper? I loved to collect image stamps. I had lots of great stamp sets, but my cards were very plain. It wasn't until I found SCS that I realized what was missing from my cards... backgrounds! I stamp on a limited budget, so my collection of backgrounds has been slowly growing. It's so hard to be patient!

So, today's challenge is to create wonderful backgrounds for your cards without background stamps. Backgrounds you can't use include any stamp set that is (or would be if it was in the current catty) in the BG section of the catty.

Cardstock & ink: any
Embellishments: any
Techniques: any that don't require BG stamps (ex: spotted BG can be done without square stamps if you have spots.)

Have fun! Here are some samples to get you thinking.

Oh, I wish I had time to play but I'm getting ready to leave for a swap this weekend!! The samples are awesome, and the challenge is a great idea. I think a challenge like this is the reason why I have my sets of Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Background Basics, and Petite Patterns! Because I didn't have many full-size BG stamps! Thanks for the challenge Jen! Keep 'em coming!

OK, I'm cheating because I'm at work, but here are a few that are already in my gallery... I happen to love the Simple Shapes set!

Two challenges in two days after taking months off - perhaps I should try VSN tomorrow!

Here's mine - I tried to stay with just ONE stamp set (you know, "limited" and all) but couldn't resist adding the "joy" from small script...

http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...0&ppuser=22182

Jen, thanks for the fun challenge! Looking forward to seeing everyone else's backgrounds.

Jen, I really enjoyed this challenge. I now have several of the large background stamps and turn to them so much of the time. It was nice to put my thinking cap on and come up with a lovely background using one of the images from the set I chose to work with. Great challenge.

Here's mine

The background freak (as my sister in law refers to me) sure likes this challenge! I hope to get some more made.

Default My first challenge

Thank you kimilou for pointing me in this direction! I've been wanting to participate in all the challenges, but I just got started stamping, so I don't have much to go on. This one is perfect for me!

Here's a sympathy card I made this evening for a friend.

Sorry Rox. I forgot to check my PM box after VSN. Pretty smart to find me here... sorry it took so long to see it though. I've been here on and off. I've been pretty sick. I stamp and cruise the gallery to keep my mind off feeling crummy, but I don't stay long. Have a Happy Thanksgiving! Sent you a PM... it's available, now!
