Cactus Flower

CHF55Cacti-wm

Hi everyone,

It’s time for another CHF challenge over on the Cornish Heritage Farms Blog . This week the challenge is hosted by Steph Ackerman.

This time round Steph has asked us to create a background with stamps.

For my card today I created a Flip-its card … I die cut the flip-its using green card and then die cut another from white paper and cut out the label in the centre which I used as a mask, I then used the Spanish Script Backgrounder and green ink to create my background. Rather than just stamp this the normal way, I inked up the backgrounder stamp and stamped just a little of the words at an angle onto my card and then masked what I stamped, changed the angle and stamped again until I had covered the whole card. So the script background is random.

In the centre of my card I used the Cactus Flower Digital Stamp.

Here is the flip side of my card. You can probably see a bit better how I did the script background. On the ‘flip side of the label I added two sentiments from the Script Essentials Expression set and also part of the Cactus Flower Digital Stamp again.

To play create a card using CHF images. You can use either CHF digi or rubber stamps to create a card or project.... anything you like as long as the stamps are Cornish Heritage Farms. (Yes, they can be older stamps.)

    Great card, Frances! I like how you treated the lettered background, with the masking.

    Awesome card Frances. I love the Flip-it design with the random background and the cactus is beautiful. Do you have a tutorial for this card design? LMK. Hugs, M
