I just can't help creating a background when I see any stamp set filled with little images. For today's card, I created my own background with fun images from the Christmas Toys stamp set

After stamping the images with Intense Black Ink, I colored them with Copic markers. Then I added some dots between the images using a grey marker to finish off my background.  

I always say that you don't have to color entire images - especially when you are in hurry completing your project or you don't feel like coloring. It's still okay and I do love the look of the partially colored background. 

I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut on a piece of black cardstock. I finished off my card by popping up the sentiment banner on the card front using 3M foam tape.

That's all for today. Hope my card inspired you to create a fun stamped background. Happy crafting!

Beautiful OLC, I love that you left parts of the images white, and the dots in the background really add interest! Thanks for the reminder I don’t have to color it all.

May I think this is just so brilliant of you to partially color the images, and using the same colors for each makes it so cohesive. You’re so talented, thanks for sharing!!
