Good things come in little packages
The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "A little stamping". As a stamper I always prefer my stamps to be HUGE, the bigger the better so this was an interesting challenge for me. (In truth, the challenge also allows for big stamps too but I decided to go with the small thing). Tim Holtz makes a set called Tiny Textures so I figured that would be perfect for my background.
I decided to create my background based around 1.25" square tiles and started by using the TinyTexture stamps to create the various patterns you can see on my card. I particularly like the green, black and red argyle type design which was created by stamping multiple impressions of the diamond stamp in various colours.
packing tape technique and included some of that in my tiled background too. The guy was inked and then I used a baby wipe to remove some of the ink from his hat and coat so that some colour would show through better. After stamping him I cut him into tiles to fit in with the background and then used contrasting colours on each section.
Supplies I used included:
