This card, from last weekend’s Stampin’ Addicts Holiday Mini Blog Hop, garnered quite a few comments! As I mentioned on the Hop, my hints for all-over, random stamping can be found here. Generally, the smaller the images, the closer I stamp them to each other. I never try to “fill in” images, I keep to the triangle method.
However, there is value in evaluating your nearly finished result and ensuring that the coverage is at least moderately consistent. So, the last stamp I use might be something like the spatter image in this set. For this card, as an experiment, I then rubbed the Tea Stain ink from Stampin’ Up!’s Distressing Essentials kit. What a fun finish!
