Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Background stamp


Good morning! I am here today to share a card from our latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show: Background stamp. I must admit....background stamps do make up the majority of my stamp stash...I could not craft without them!!! I LOVE them!!!
For this card I used this gorgeous background stamp:

It is called CC027 Flourishes, and it is an Impression-Obsession 5.75 X 5.75 inch rubber cling stamp.....love it...definitely very versatile and perfect for so many different projects!! You can find it HERE.
At first I thought my inked background paper would maybe too busy...but I really think this background stamp is the star of the show :) If you are interested in how I created the background paper, you can see this post HERE. Basically you just squirt drops of alcohol ink into water and dip your watercolour paper in it....easy peasy!

Just a little close-up to show my most favorite Simon Says Fresh Daisies Die :)

Just by participating in this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show, you can be the lucky random winner of a $50 dollar store voucher to use at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore :) :) :)

I would love to see your background stamps....I am sure I will be enabled :)
Have a fantastic day! Hugs, TRace
