Greetings friends! Would it surprise you to know my favorite stamp from the new release is a Cover a Card background? I am so predictable.

I want to show you a couple of ways to use the new Rainbow Scales background. For the first card, I stamped it with green ink onto green cardstock and cut it out to look like decorative grass. My house was colored using Copic markers.

I shared a version of the penguin card with you before. This time I changed out the snowflake background and added the scales instead:


I paired the scales background with the new Letters Cover a Card background, which honestly, was a very close second for favorite of the new release. It is a great background for an artsy design.

The penguin was colored with Copic markers, and both the penguin and sentiment are from the same clear stamp set.
