using graphic images for backgrounds

Today I am using a graphic image strip to create a background.  Here’s the card:

The background panel with the white design uses an image from  Papertrey’s Background Builders – Retro set.  I stamped the image 7 times on a piece of transparency using Staz-on white opaque ink.   Lining each row up was a breeze with the Fiskars Stamp Press – if you don’t have one of these get one!!  It is perfect for doing this type of pattern.

The sentiment, from Impression Obsession, was stamped with SU Teal ink  The patterned paper is from American Crafts Shoreline series, the cardstock from Mark’s Finest Papers.  The little starfish sticker is from K and Company and was the perfect match in color to the cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by today!
