Good Times: Background Stamping Technique

 photo 4a64240c-52d3-4639-abda-fc2b9137c9de_zpsb6bd90b4.jpg

To create the back ground I used my Hero Arts Envelope Liner Stamp and inked the entire stamp with Antique Linen Distress Ink and then randomly using Vintage Photo distress ink. It gives a faded random pattern to the background stamp.  

The stars were embossed in gold. After die cutting the 2 notebook dies, I punched out a rectangle using a square punch that I angled a bit and punched twice to get the shape I wanted. I layered the notebook dies to create some added interest. The alien was left as is :)

Here is the sketch for this week if you want to give it a go.

and the rest of the DT:

Stamps: Envelope liner Hero Arts, Space Cadet Paper Smooches
Paper: Crate Paper Acorn Avenue
