I started with black cardstock paper and used a background stamp and white pigment ink to stamp random images throughout. Before the white ink dried, I used my fingers to smudge certain parts of the stamped images. This created areas that were more pronounced than others and left behind a smudgy chalk effect. To match my darker background color, I knew I would use bolder, brighter embellishments from the Flea Market collection. I opted for a black and white photo, a perfect complement as it helps make the scrapbook process easier with less conflicting colors to deal with.
If you are wondering, the background stamp is from Basic Grey. It is by far my most favourite background stamp. I especially love the look of this stamp when it is embossed in white.
