Hello everyone! A very happy Friday to you! It’s Lydia here. Today I will be sharing a technique that allows you to have a bold background as well as stamping on a one layer card.

To start, I cut a number of masks using Indoor Garden Die Set and sticky notes. Once I had created enough, I added these into position on a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock. You could even use this technique for just stamping backgrounds, as it would help you position your stamping without committing to any stamping first. I then stamped over the large background image from Gradient Stripes Stamp Set using Permanent Black Ink.

Once the background was stamped, I could then remove the masks and stamp the corresponding images (using Industrial Diamond Ink) from the Indoor Garden Stamp Set into the blank space left. For the leaves and cactus, I used a mix of Bamboo, Parrot, Olive and Moss Inks, Almond Butter Ink for the soil and Sea Glass and Ocean Waves Inks for the pots and water.

I finished the card off simply by using a sentiment from Potted Plants Stamp Set heat embossed in Pure White Embossing Powder onto a strip of Jet Black Cardstock.
