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.
