September Stamp of the Month - Paper Garden Background Card

Backgrounds give you the solid base you need to make a beautiful focal point pop. But they don't have to be plain and boring - they can be fun and pretty too!

September's Stamp of the Month (Paper Garden) has lovely floral images that make great backgrounds. And simple patterned paper can also help ground your art.

Tone-On-Tone Backgrounds: I stamped one of the floral images in Whisper ink on Whisper cardstock - this creates a background that looks elegant, but doesn't take away from the focal point.

Background Stamps: These can help you create texture, like the white circle I stamped with the wire fence image.

Paper Fundamentals: Glossy pattern on one side, bold print on the other. I used soft colors from the Enchantment palette, which helped make the bold Pomegranate flower and Paper Fundamentals Assortment glitter stickers pop.
