French Script Background Stamp.

Myself and the rest of the girls on the Darkroom Door Creative Team have been playing with the French Script Background Stamp:

Isn't it just lovely? All the Darkroom Door Background Stamps measure 6.1" x 4.3" which means they are big enough to cover a whole 6x4" card front! This particular script stamp was designed so that you can cover a whole horizontal card in one go, however when you want to cover a whole vertical card, all you do is stamp once at the top, then again underneath, which is MUCH easier than trying to line up the words by stamping side by side. Too clever!

For my example, I chose to use the stamp as a background to my card:

I stamped the stamp in purple ink on a green background, then inked around the edges with the same colour.

I used ribbon, lace, hessian, a piece of dictionary definition patterned paper, brads, an ornate metal ribbon slide, and an image from the Darkroom Door "Hats" Photobooth sheet as embellishments on my card. Here is a close up:

The other CT Girls have used their stamp in lots of different ways - pop on over to the DD Blog to check them out! This stamp is a definite must have in your stash, and the CT will show you lots of different ways to use it!
