This stamp from Artistic Outpost it just perfect for the bandanna technique! The background is purple and crimson Memories dye ink, sponged on white cardstock. I almost threw it away...I didn't really like the way the colors came out at first. I decided to use it for practice and ended up loving the color. To make the swirls go all the way around the card, I inked that portion of the stamp and kept stamping and rotating, until it was covered. I hated covering it up - it was so pretty! I have a friend that says you're not supposed to fall in love with your backgrounds. If you do, you're supposed to paint over it and start again....or something like that. Ack! If I did that, I would never get anything done. Am I the only one who hates covering up?
