Life Is Good


Look carefully at this canvas and you'll see the background stamping I did with the Whimsical Melange set.  I wanted a very subtle background and used an assortment of these stamps to achieve it.  Of course I also used the banner stamp from that set, too, as well as the sentiment from the Typography set. 
I started by covering my canvas with white gesso and then just added my stamps with different colored inks.   A little glitter went around the edges of the canvas.  I stamped my banner onto the canvas and then once again on a separate sheet of cardstock which I then cut out and attached over the original banner. 
Lots of great background stamps in the Whimsical Melange set.  And the banner stamp is my new favorite!
