You COLOR my world!

So I guess today is play with MarketStreetStamps background stamps day in Nikki-ville!!! :) For this redonkulously simple card I stamped the Argyle background stamp with Tim Holtz embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder on white cardstock. {you could use white powder here}...There are 7 rows on this stamp and I cut evenly between the rows to get strips to ink. I kept row 4 to use as a spacer to add my sentiment. I inked with the following distress colors...barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard seed, shabby shutters, broken china, milled lavender, and a smidgen of seedless preserves. Now, my embossing didn't end up perfect cuz I need new powder BUT I still love how this turned out! 
This is a full A2 sized card. Like I said in my post earlier today, MarketStreetStamps backgrounds really DO COVER the front of an A2 card. ♥ ♥ ♥ The sentiment is from the Simply Everything set from PinkByDesign. It fit this card just perfectly! :) love when that happens!

Ok, I swear I'm done posting today...heheehehe
