Gallery Idol Round #3


Hiya Everybody,

Round #3 of Gallery Idol! I am pinching myself to see if it is true that I made it to round three. And yes I have! Yay! I sincerely thank you all who voted for me in round #2. Hope you will do the same for this round too:)





 For round three, the theme was to make our own stamped background. It sounded easy yet tough for me due to two reasons. First time constraints I had. I am on vacation in Vancouver as you are reading this. And I had less than 24 hours to make my card. Secondly, I was totally zapped looking at all the stamps and deciding what to do! OMGee! deciding what to do which stamp to select took a lot of time. I made three cards but I choose this card to submit for round #3. 


I have used Plano stamp and the coordinating smaller version of Plano in the You are the Best Stamp Set for this card. I have done a lot of masking and stamping to get this graphic background. To add colours, I used Copic markers to colour. I just love the depth masking technique gives and the pop of colour. Since the background is busy and colourful, I have added two strips of black card stock upon which I have heat embossed the sentiment (from Lil' Inkers Design) using white embossing powder. I chose this card for round #3 because the technique involved, graphic background, the depth it gives and the pop of colours.

Hope you like my stamped background. If you do like it, please vote for me.
