Background stamps

Have you ever been looking for the right background stamp and just could not find it well why not create it yourself. All it takes is for you to let your imagination loose and use what ever you can find. If you want to see the full tutorial please head on over to   Off The Rails Scrapbooking.

The photo above can use see those annoying thin stringy bits of glue well I have a little secret that I am going to tell you of how to get rid of them.

Once your hot glue is dry blast them with your heat gun and they melt away like magic, see the after photo below. No stringy bits.

So after this success I got to thinking what else do I have in this room of mine that I can create another background stamp with. I opened up my cupboard and one of my huge jars of buttons caught my eye (I have 5 jars of button, it's not an obsession really it's not).

I decided that I was going to use two different coloured inks on my buttons and this is the result that I got.

All these ideas are buzzing around my head now. 

Next time you are looking for a background stamp why not try and create one of your own. 
Happy Creating
