Make It Monday #42

  Hi everyone! I'm joining in this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge!
 This week, we are making backgrounds using our sentiment stamps. You can give a 'layered' look by stamping on scratch paper different number of times before onto your cardstock - this makes your images lighter in shade and when you overlap each other, they start to look more layered.
 
So here's the card I made. I did use my scratch paper to lighten the ink to different 'dilutions' you might call it, but I purposefully didn't overlap each sentiment. I've always loved this sort of sentiment backgrounds where sentiments/words/letters face all directions randomly ;)
 
 
Big Birthday Wishes is a great set for making this sort of backgrounds, because it contains fonts of varying sizes. I only used the SU! Old Olive ink pad to make this background. I really enjoyed fitting bits together, and love the way it turned out. I will have to use it more often :)
 
I topped off with a ribbon and the By the Numbers die cut.
 
Thanks for coming around :)
