CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Blushing Backgrounds

Thank you for joining us for this month's Technique Blog Hop where we are featuring "Blushing Backgrounds". The theme can be interpreted a variety of ways and I'm excited to see what the participants created. I hope you are too!

If you are coming from Amy Ulen's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post, should you get lost along the way.
We have a variety of background stamps, or you can use any chosen image and stamp it repeatedly, to get a desired pattern on your artwork. That's how I interpreted this theme and decided to keep it simple by using the, "Comic Book Scenes" stamp set. 
The stamp set comes with these 12 images. (The top two, and bottom left, images are all one stamp image. The nine smaller images can be used independently or together, combining a great cluster.)

Using the star image (top left), I stamped it several times in Glacier ink to fill the piece of White Daisy cardstock. What I appreciate about this technique is that essentially I can create any patterned paper, I choose; design and color. If you have a theme that is not supported by paper you have in your possession, why not create your own?! I did!
The astronaut and sentiment are from this adorable stamp set from the Stargazer collection. You can get the coordinating Thin Cuts which eliminates the need for fussy-cutting on these five images! And... that "orbit" image in the top right! That's what I used on the sentiment piece. It could have totally been the image I used on the bigger white piece. It's cute! 

I appreciate you stopping by and am excited about what else you will see as you continue through this hop. Head over to Darlys Recker's, "Craft Happy" Blog, to see what she has created and be sure to leave a comment before you do! I always enjoy hearing from you!

Happy hoppin'!
