Back to Backgrounds

It's always a good idea to go through your stamps and try to use something in a new way. Here I used an old background stamp for my card front. Rather than stamp and cut it out to fit the front of my card, I stamped it directly on the face of the card and created a "soft border" by going around the edges of the card with the same Distress Mustard Ink. I plan to use this method with many of the other background stamps I have been neglecting.
