Greetings friends. Most of you know by now how much I love my IO Cover a Card backgrounds. It wouldn't be a true hop for me if I didn't share one of the new designs with you.
To make my card, I created a background using an older and a new background stamp. I started with white cardstock and then stamped the Clouds background on top with Sky Blue ink. The clouds background gives you a really beautiful and realistic looking sky, but I was using it primarily for texture under the second stamp. Next I stamped the new Mini Beach Print background using Navy ink. Here is a closeup of the two backgrounds:
For my wavy background, I used a single wave stamp in my MISTI stamp positioner and stamped it twice in Baby Blue ink (top), twice in Sky Blue ink (middle), and twice in Navy ink (bottom). I simply moved the paper approx 1/4" each time I stamp to get a row of waves with an ombre look.
To finish the card, I added a sentiment with black ink and cut out a palm tree that I embellished with brown pearls.
Impression Obsession Items Used:
