This is an improvement on the last one I submitted twice by accident I must admit! This is using one ink pad, Perfect Plum.
Take triangle makeup sponge and ink it up apply it to your shape and it will be more even and expect a lighter shade and stamp that. Then choose your stamp design and stamp that into the exact ink and over the shapes you have chosen. It will be a darker shade. I then cut the paper down to size and trimmed it. I also cut a piece of matching dark paper perfect plum and crimped it to apply behind the stamped images. I then applied it to a shade lighter purple card stock, which is a very close match to the shapes I have chosen to stamp with.
(use large part of sponge to ink up)
Try this on other images too, for a softer background look when turning your stamps into backgrounds!
