One of the beautiful things about a background stamp, is you can create your own background paper in any color you choose. I've used soft purple colors to create this sympathy card:
The background is a new JustRite release for June called Blooming Vines Background. I stamped it in Black Tuxedo Memento Ink, then colored it in with Copic Markers. I stamp again and cut out some of the flowers to add around the sentiment. I brushed the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, brushed them with some Rock Candy Distress Stickles, and after they were dry, added a center of beads from Queen & Co.
The fancy oval and sentiment were stamped and embossed, and foam taped in layers on top of the pretty die cut....another new June release, the Damask Flourish One....this one is so versatile and has instantly become one of my favorite things!! The bow and pearl are finishing touches.
