Instant Distress - Rogue Redhead

I just love the large background stamp on the new beach babe plate from Rogue Redhead Designs. It's like instant distress. I stamped the whole thing in one colour and then turned it through 180 degrees and stamped it again in a different colour. Finally I inked it up with brown and dabbed my card randomly onto the stamp, the result.... instant distress background.
I simply finished by stamping words from bits and pieces and the fern from floriculture. I distressed the edges of the panel, mounted onto kraft card and added a ribbon.
A very quick and easy card, with a background which looks like it took time, but actually took seconds.


  1. I tried to guess how you'd done this before reading it... scrunched up....or sprayed, crinkled and flattened (all sound like a day in the life of me lol)...but nope its a stamp!! It looks like a genuine distressed technique! Brilliant. Great idea multi stamping it.

  2. Well played! Great use of the background so elegantly put together!

  3. A very useful stamp Joanne! great card

  4. Wonderfully done! Great use of the background stamp.
