Backgrounds in Bloom


40-283 Floral Tapestry;  30-162 Eloquence;  51-035 Dots and Swirls
This week on the Penny Black blog the designers are featuring projects using some of the new backgrounds from the latest release, Bloom. I have my own favorite from this release and here's what I did with it.
 
This background stamp is called "Floral Tapestry" and it can take on different personalities depending on the color of ink used with it.  I chose a delicate pink and white theme this time.
 
I stamped the background on only three quarters of the card leaving some white space for sequins.  I used the Dots and Swirls die to create a swirly strip covering the "seam".  I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Smokey Grey ink, to keep things delicate.  The dragon fly is stepping in for the little butterfly die that I can't find anywhere!!  I am thinking his curvy graceful lines are in tune with the delicate theme so it all works out!
 
The Bloom release is full of beautiful florals, background stamps and Creative Dies, just in time to welcome Spring. 
 
After some terrifying storms, we are enjoying lovely Spring days and the Knock Out rose bushes are in full bloom already!  Hope you are enjoying lovely weather and some time to spend crafting!
