Letting the Background Do the Work
This pattern, which I made with a new to me company called AHA Arts Stamps (purchased at Paper Source), reminds me of Marimekko, which was so popular before many of you were born! I LOVE Marimekko!
Those bold colorful patterns make me happy. The background is so bold and bright that I only needed white cardstock, ink, and a sentiment.
Speaking of the sentiment, it is from Altenew's Quilled Elegance, which I won, along with a ridiculous amount of other stamps and items. Jennifer Rzasa held a quick contest on Facebook and I guessed the right answer first. Score!
MOOD WHEN DONE = Lucky
I was able to get even coverage even with dye ink by stamping with a new product called MISTI. It is like a plastic book/stamp positioner that allows you to stamp in the exact spot over and over. At the moment, they are out of stock and the price just went up to $50, which is a lot of money. But this thing is worth it as you'll save $$ on paper. Shari Carroll did a video on how to use it here.
