Work That Background

Hello friends!
Today's post is more about the background.

 We all love using a good background stamp to create something unique and colorful.

I had a fun take on this stamp called Verdure (Penny Black).

I stamped the it with the help of MISTI and you know me, I love multi-colored stamping. After I did just that, I stamped in Versamark and applied Clear Embossing Powder. Once that's heat-embossed, I proceed to do Emboss Resist.  

Happy Birthday

You can see the shine from the clear-embossing. To add the interest, I decided to add a ink-sprayed butterfly (from Butterfly Trio) and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. And remember this thing called ribbons? Yeah, they are not used so much these days. I think it's a good fit here.

This is SO pretty. Virginia.
Can I ask... Do you 'multi colour stamp' your image all at once or a bit at a time?
