I've been playing with a fabulous background stamp from Pink Fresh Studio called Winterberry Background... and have used it in three different ways - firstly on a Distress Ink blended red background, heat embossing the image with gold embossing powder. It's a bit difficult to get the gold mirri to show properly on the photograph unfortunately. I used red cardstock to start, but blended Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany around the edge before stamping. I added a little sentiment from an MFT set - also embossed in gold.
Next I stamped it in black ink onto Kraft card, colouring with Copics. Again, I added the same little sentiment.
I added glossy accents to the berries on all three cards to give some texture, and also a few little sequins.
Lastly, I stamped the image onto white cardstock, again colouring with Copics..
Copic Colours - YG17, G46, G99, R46, E57
I think you'll agree that it looks so different on each of the different backgrounds - and it's a stamp I'm sure I'll use over and over again!
