live everyday 62

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's Monday so it's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge on the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog! This week's theme is all about stamping on something other than the usual cardstock. 

For my sample, I was inspired to create a mini burlap canvas which features a scene that I created stamping on patterned paper. Stamping on patterned paper is a great way to add that little extra detail to any project with out much effort.
For the background, I stamped the spill images, the decorative corner piece and foliage on piece of pretty patterned paper from the Tim Holtz Paper Stash French Industrial collection:
The subtle text noted in the stamped sentiment label and bird adds a bit of interest to what would have been a plain background if stamped on solid paper.
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you join in the fun! Please be sure to stop by the Simon Says Monday Challenge blog to see all the amazing DT inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

Fabulous make Mona and a great idea! I really don't think about stamping on patterned paper. It does create visual interest (and you don't have to recreate the wheel if you start with a patterned background to begin with!) Lovely vintage feel to this project -- just beautiful. Thanks for the inspiration :) -- Mary Elizabeth
