Well, this was not such an easy technique for me. First of all, I tried using a couple of stamps that had more of a solid background and that just was not working. Finally, I pulled this old wood stamp off my shelf and tried it. Success at last. In fact, I have used more of my old wood stamps in this class than I have in a long time. So that is a good thing. The background is also a wood stamp. The sentiment and die cut banner are PTI.
