So, for my post on the A Blog Named Hero facebook page today I wanted to use one of my neglected background stamps, the Vertical Arrows by Hero Arts. This one is a favourite of mine but I rarely use it. I really should figure out more ways to use my backgrounds because they are so lovely. For this I white embossed the stamp on Neenah Destert Storm cardstock and coloured it with distress ink.
Then I diecut the In a word hugs cutaway from Winnie and walter and one of the leave dies from in bloom, Maggies roses set. I did some extra diecuts of each out of white cardstock to stack up the diecuts. When I was done the pattenr kinda made me a bit dizzy and I diecut the shapes again from vellum and adhered on top of the die cuts to tone them down a bit and that looked perfect. I used the X-shaped sticker machine from Xyron to make the vellum sticky without any ugly adhesive showing through.
I hope you like it, I had fun making it and it turned out very pretty I think!
