As I sat down to create for this challenge I did my normal of pulling out Distress Inks and watercolours as this is ALWAYS my go to for backgrounds, then I remembered I have SO many background stamps and decided to create a couple of CAS cards using Simon's Wide Stripes Background stamp. I decided to rotate it for each card so it was slight different and used it along with Concord & 9ths Seriously, Thank You stamp set

Crafter's Companion August ChallengeBeFunky-collagemain-2

I used Simon's Clear Ink for the background and Simon's Intense Black ink for the actually main stamp. They felt a little too CAS so I added some Studio Katia Clear Droplets and was really happy with how they both turned out. 

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
