Tutorial - Background stamp+embossing powder+ink sprays

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,
Today,I've small tutorial , how can we use background stamps with inks for making projects.

Lets start,

I used Heartfelt Creation Vintage Morning floral background stamp and Micia watermark pad to make impression four times on white paper. I dusted Lindy's stamp gang white pearl embossing powder on it and heat embossed with my Ranger Heat Tool.

I spritzed Lindys stamp gang Poinsettia Red Gold, Dylusions Pure sun shine and Heidi Swapp Colorshine Gold. And lifted extra color with another paper.

Distressed the edges with Ripe persimmon and Barn door distress inks.
And its ready to take the embellishments.

I diecut the frame with Sizzix Frameworks  Die- trellis, colored it with distress inks. Flowers are from Prima Orange Assorted collection. I stamped leaves with Heartfelt Bold Leaf cling stamp and Staz on Pumpkin ink and fuzzy cut it. For a bird, I used Memory box Die, coloerd it and also applied Ranger crackle accents, you can see crackled texture on Birdie!!
I also used Prima Sugar dots and  butterflies.
