OCC Stretch Your Stamps 2 - Homework, Days 1 & 2, Part 2

I'm back with card 2 for the current Online Card Classes Stretch Your Stamps 2 class, where days 1 & 2 are focused on Background and Reverse Background stamps. I made two cards. My first homework project is here. For my second card I followed Shari's project to make this:

I didn't follow directions exactly, but I still like the way this turned out, and it's all about trying new things, right? I'm not even sure the three colors of ink I chose work together, but they're fine by me! Even though it may not be obvious, I did use a T-square to line up the center column of squares, then eye-balled the other two columns, so of course they are a bit off, but I'm okay with that, too! :)

Each square is popped up on a foam square, and since the background was inked on water color paper, I sacrificed two more sheets to make the white layer and the card front. I may stamp and layer crooked, but I try to be consistent with my papers.

Okay, I'm off to play now with lessons learned in Day 3. So fun - you should participate, too. There are so many great tips!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stuff I used: misc gray card stock, and the following:


  1. You did much better on this one than I did. I love that you added that bit of black border. Very striking!


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
