Three Ways to Create Background Stamped Panels

One of the weekly challenges this month at the Heart 2 Heart challenge blog is to use background or random stamping. (I've now completed 3 of the 4 March challenges and will finish the 4th one soon.) Using the Hello Lovely Cardmaking stamps I created three different cards using the same stamps.

Card #1--White embossed and then watercolor painted:

Card #2--Clear embossed and then sponge colored with Poppy and Fern inks

Card #3--Stamped with Memento Black ink on White Daisy paper

Which one do you like best?

I'm sharing these cards with these challenges:
     Heart 2 Heart--Background Stamping
     Simon Says Wednesday--Anything Goes
     Cards in Envy--Black, White and Pop of Color
     The Male Room--Colours
     CAS Colours and Sketches--Sketch

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!

  1. All your cards are beautiful. My favourite is the second. Love the soft look. Thanks for playing along Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge. Gayatri xx

  2. Love all your cards. The one for our challenge is really pretty. I love how the black and white of the roses stands out on the blue! Thanks for sharing with us at Cards in Envy.

  3. Love how you've kept the floral panel uncoloured, looks quite spectacular against the black and blue mats. Thanks for playing at CC&S.

  4. Thanks for playing along with us at CC&S! I love the do-it-yourself pattern paper!

  5. All of your floral cards are just beautiful! It's hard to pick favorite because they are so different. I really like how you added the blue paper to frame the black and white stamped flowers. And stamping the sentiment in blue really finishes the card perfectly. Thanks for playing with us over at Cards in Envy!

  6. Boy, you went crazy with your random stamping and they are all very pretty...can't even determine a favorite. Beautiful, bright, cheery, flowers. And thank you sharing and mentioning the four challenges at H2H...appreciate the plug and glad you participated in our Perfect Attendance for March...please come back in April.

  7. These are all so gorgeous- I especially like the black and white one! Thanks for joining us at H2H Challenges.

  8. Lovely cards, the black, white and blue card is stunning. Thanks for joining us at CC&S.

  9. I popped over from CC&S and I think I do like the monochrome card best. It's so interesting, though, what different looks you can get from the same stamps.

  10. Beautiful cards and wonderful techniques, love how striking the blue and black is. Thanks so much for sharing and joining in at CC&S. Hugs Bev x

  11. Your last card is what brought me to your blog today. The blossoms are striking in black and white, and you've paired a lovely shade of blue with it. Thanks for sharing your card at CC&S!

  12. What a gorgeous stamped image you have created, Marie. It makes for a fabulous take on the sketch. Thanks so much for playing with our sketch this week at CC&S! Hugs, Cathy
