Online Card Class – Stretch your stamps 2 – Day 2

I am taking an Online Card Class again – this one is called Stretch your Stamps 2….

It is very informative and I recommend it to everyone… I have been stamping for 20 years and I still learn something new, or get reminded of a technique I haven’t used in a while… like this one from Day 2 using background stamps.

The background stamp is stamped in Versamark ink, embossed in white, then the background is inked with a graduation of Distress Inks to almost give an Ombre look.  I’ve always liked this technique and hadn’t used it in a while…

Here is my card:
