Use them or lose them #12, project #2

This week I have been playing with the  Dictionary background stamp.  On Sunday I shared a journal page where I had used the stamp three times.  Here I have a set of cards using the stamp to its full effect as a background stamp.

I picked out some dsp with a subtle grey circle pattern and onto this I stamped the entire stamp using a grey ink.  I then cut the panel out so there was just a small border. Then I used the Clarity bubbles stencil to add the circles in Lost Lagoon and Bermuda Bay.   I then edged the panel with the grey.  I mounted this on a piece of striped dsp in the same subtle grey but edged this with the stencil brushes and the coloured ink as well as the grey ink.

One I made much darker than the other. 
For the focal point I added the typewriter from Tap Tap Tap set using a Versamark ink and black embossing detail powder.  I also stamped it again on white paper so I could cut out the sheet of paper as a piece of contrast for the typing to show up on.  I then used the tap stamp to do the border.

Love how these came out.  Perfect partners these two stamp sets.  Love them both.  They are not going anywhere!

Happy crafting!
