Hello crafty friends, Marine here,┬átoday I’m showcasing the Simple Stripes Background stamp on a tropical themed card. As always I started with the coloring, and stamped all the images on 80lbs Neenah solar white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink, I used the coordinating dies to cut them all and then my alcohol markers to color everything.
.
On this card I also used:
Jungle Littles, for the flower and some leaves
Portrait Pals, for more leaves
More Jungle Littles, for a leaf
Silly Birds, for the toucan and flowers
.
.
Once the coloring was done, I created the background. I placed the Simple Stripes Background stamp in my misti tool and stamped it three times using black versafine ink. I could’ve stamped it one last time to get a very crisp result but I like my backgrounds to have texture so I stopped at three stamping to get a worn out look.
.
From that panel I cut a 5,5 x 4,25″ panel and then attached my images on it using a combination of liquid glue, foam squares and glue dots. And for my sentiment, I cut some letters out of a purple cardstock using the Oliver Alpha die set to create the word ‘Tweet’.
.
Once everything was attached, I added the second part of my sentiment ‘You make my beak sing’ from Silly Birds, and finally I glued a few clear droplets here and there for a extra touch of shine. And that’s it! I hope you like this super bold tropical card, I leave you with the video right below and wish a very good day!
