I love creating stamped backgrounds -- which just happens to be a challenge this week at the Arty Girlz challenge blog. Lots of beautiful creations to see there.
I made these bookmarks for the women in my Bible study group. The background was created by applying gold brilliance ink to my paper as well as brown chalk ink around the edges. I then stamped my bookmark with stamps from Paper Inspirations (diamond pattern, flowers), Hero Arts (French script), and Art Impressions (Scripture verse).
