I adore the Off the Grid background stamp and like to use it on masculine cards and projects but I was thinking the other day about how it could be used on a less manly card and decided to do some experimenting. . .
The stamp reminds me of a damaged fly screen and I love how it is a bit rustic and a bit grungy (not even sure if that is a real word) but it suits what I am trying to convey. I can imagine this type if pattern occurring naturally in an industrial setting. It immediately brings to mind graffiti and because of this my mind turned to colour.
I wanted to introduce colour but not strong primary colours; soft subtle new in colours. . . So I used Pistachio Pudding, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Daffodil Delight although I was a little worried about how this bright yellow would blend in.
The Pool Party twine is from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories Kit in the Sale-a-Bration cattie which of course was a FREE gift when I spent $90 on product. I added the Rhinestone Jewels because I accidently got a bit of black ink on the coloured area and needed to cover it and of course I couldn't just have one random diamante I had to add two more!
Proof that an otherwise masculine stamp can be used on a girly card.
Colour your world!
