It's Sneak Peek Week for My Creative Time's 48th Edition Release, and today we are showcasing a fun new background stamp called Best Friends Background. I tried out a new technique with it, and I really like how it turned out. First, I heat embossed the stamp onto watercolor paper with clear embossing powder. Then I added blotches of distress ink all over it, spritzing it with water to let the inks blend together. Once it had dried, I put the paper between two sheets of printer paper and used my clothes iron to iron off the embossing, leaving a nice smooth, matte look.
Once my background was trimmed and adhered to a white card base, I die cut the "friend" die from the new Friendships are Forever set three times, adhered them together, and added that to the front of the card. I stamped "feel better" from this set, cut a little flag around it, and adhered it above the die cut. Finally, I added some turquoise sequins.
