Rebel Challenge #8: Stamped Background

Today, a new Rebel Challenge posted at the RRD blog. This time, we are asking you to use a stamped background in your creation!

I've used one of the backgrounds I made last week and my Relish Reading plate to create this card. I love the great texture that was created by overlapping the various distress inks and background stamps.

Here's what the background looked like before I dressed it up. I started with the Sandy Beach Background, stamped in Wild Honey Distress ink. I then inked up my Almanac background from Relish Reading, stamping it in Spiced Marmalade Distress ink. Finally, I re-inked the Sandy Beach background with Tea Dye Distress ink, turning the Sandy Beach background 180 degrees before stamping it again.

Here's the finished card with all the trimmings.
