Creating a Background

 
     Good to see you, my blogging friends!  I would like to share a card I made for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is to create a background.  I had an older stamp set on my desk top from Inkadinkado, which was their Wedding/Marriage set.  I decided that this free flowing dove and heart stamp would make a great random background.

     My card also uses my new SB dies set called Ironwork Accents.  I stamped my image and sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and you background stamp was done with Tuxedo Black Memento, since I was adding touches of C1 Copic to the doves.  I sponged edges with SU! Smokey Slate ink.  My background hearts were done with red Memento and covered in Diamond Stickles.  I added red gems from KI. 

     I would also like to take this card over to Pixie's Snippets Playground #173
, since I believe the gates have opened, and I have used more of my bits of white card to create.

     Thanks for the visit, and have a glorious Sunday!

What a gorgeous background - and just perfect for the image. If you run out of white snippets say the word - I seem to have a shed load of them here :)
