More homemade stamps..

Morning bloggers..

Just a quick post today to continue on from my post last thursday, handmade stamps..

I wanted to try and make some background stamps as they can be so expepensive and I have a couple of background dies already.

If you want to see how I make these stamps, scroll down a couple of posts or use the label "forgotten stash". I made a wee tutorial.

Here is todays card.

These 2 stamps are made from the same die. The die cuts the frame and the other stamp is made from the "waste". It took a bit longer to put together but I love the result.

 The finished result.
I stamped the blue frame first (used distress ink throughout the card) and then stamped the green after. I love how its not completly strait. It adds a modern twist.
The rest is simple matting and layering.
The phone is a stamp/die set from Clearly Besotted stamps.

And that is all from me for today. 
Thank you for visiting and please leave a comment and let me know you been here.
