MCT Favorite Stamp of the Month

Today we are featuring another My Creative Time Favorite Stamp of the Month!  This month, it's the fun Stripey Background II! If this set has been on your wish list, you can pick it up here at a discount price.  It's on sale for the entire month of April!  The sale ends on April 30, 2016, at 12:00 AM PST.


I stamped Stripey Background II onto some watercolor cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed clear embossing powder before watercoloring with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky for my background.  By inking up the stamp selectively, I was able to leave an area to stamp my sentiment from Happy Everything.  The big "happy" die cut was made with the die from that set as well.  I used the Party Hat Dies to make my fun party hat, and I trimmed down my watercolor piece using one of the Stitched Postage Frame Dies.

Be sure to stop by Emma's blog for more inspiration using Stripey Background II!
