I decided to use the entire stamp to create a soft and colorful background.
hello friend (2)

I just love how Distress Oxide can help with stamping and ink-blending.

hello there

I do have one tip for stamping background like this.
Ding---> start with the main image that you want and then work the rest AROUND it.
That way, you will not struggle with odd and empty space. Be sure to tilt your stamps or paper while you stamp, too! This will make it more visually-appealing!
As you can see, my stamped images are not completely clean and crisp.

hello friend

But that's OK...because I really just want to have a play and not having to fuss about the details.
That's really what stamping is about--explore anything your heart desires with stamps and forget about the rules once in a while!
Hello friend-001

 Allow yourself to make imperfect impressions. It's absolutely fun and freeing!

Your strawberries reslly look true to life-- not all of them are perfectly red, white and green spots do occur.
Like the strawberry background being the main focus!

Love the pretty soft ethereal look of your background Virginia. You are super uber talented.

What a beautiful background Virginia, the varying colours is really striking and make the sentiment pop.

Such a dreamy strawberry background, Virginia! The metallic thread behind the sentiment adds the perfect touch!!
