Technique Tuesday #3

Hello friends!

I am back with another Technique Tuesday feature!
You can check out my previous post here and here.
from: Simon Says Stamp
s
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰The entire stamp and die set is $22.48 over Technique Tuesday here
TT also has some NEW stamps and die release (see here)

 Today's card is pretty straightforward. I don't think there is much technique involved. 
However, I do want to share about the background.  
wishing you love

When you see stamps like this, you don't think about using it in the background as much.

Ding---> stamps like this (with outlines) also makes such a nicely background if you just ever slightly stamp it in the background. I stamped it in blue and then did as a tone on tone with ink-blending.

With the blue background, the tiger Lilies s really stands out and the colors just pop! 

wishing you love

I hope today's post inspires you and make you look at your stamps in a creative way!

The light blue stamping of the flower in the background is genius, Virginia. Love this card!

Your tiger lily card is so sweet and beautiful.
Love the extra stamping on the background.
Thank you, Virginia, for the tips and inspiration!

Hi Virginia, Awesome card, just so Beautiful. It is so funny how some people can think " Out side the box " like you do, I would NEVER think to do that with my stamps, I wish so much I could be creative like you designers are, I guess I just have to learn from you all. That stamping of the Blue is just such a great idea, and it does make the flower POP. What a shame you are not doing the TT after the 13th, I enjoy those. Thanks for inspiring me today.

The tiger lilies are just beautiful and the tone on tone stamping really complements the card! I never think of adding stamping like that to a card and matching it to a blended background. Really pretty. Love your new TechniqueTuesdays feature.

Gorgeous card! Love the soft blue background.

Just beautiful, Virginia! And, I'm glad that you talked about the background because I didn't even notice the stamping at first.

Sue D said...

Very pretty--I like how you created the background.

conil said...

You're absolutely correct, the soft tone on tone background makes your lily stand out even more. Such a glorious color combo, as well.

Denise Bryant said...

The Lily Wishes stamp is one of my favorites from TT! Love the colors you used on your pretty card, and the subtle stamping for the background!

Jen said...

Brilliant idea! I love the soft background for the flowers on top. It really does cause them to pop and a fun accent since they are the same. Love it!

Elaine Cook said...

Your tiger lily card is beautiful! I love that idea of stamping the image in the background...it adds so much to the card!

Harriet said...

Wonderful card and a vibrant lily.....but....it's your use of the stamp as a background in blue, yet, plus the added blue that makes this card so stunning!

Sue D said...

Gorgeous! I'm loving all the tiger lily sets this spring and this one is beautiful. Your lovely background really does make the pretty lilies pop! TFS.
