Make Your Own Background Paper

Hi Friends!

I got the idea for this card from Dawn Griffith, but unfortunately, I didn't have any polka dot background paper so I decided to make my own!


Can you guess what I used?  If you said a pencil, you would be right!  I tapped the eraser end of a pencil onto a Classic Ink Pad and then stamped it right on to my background paper.  Give it a try...it works like a charm!

Happy Stamping,
Jane

  10. Really cute card. I did that with a pencil one time to make the dots on the wings of a lady bug. Love how you added pearls to the circles. I'm a new follower from Stampin' Connection (#247 on the list). Come by for a visit.
