Darkroom Door Background Stamps

It's Tuesday, which means that it's my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. This week my TFS teammates and I are sharing projects using Darkroom Door's Background Stamps. You should pop by the TFS blog throughout the week to see what the this talented group of ladies have done this week.

These stamps are sized to fit an A6 card as a background, so you can use them to create your own custom patterned paper, trim the backgrounds down to fit a tag, an A2 card, or use to cut dies too. I do love the versatility of these fabulous backgrounders, so much so that I've got two cards to share with you!

Here's the first card, which is a modified Spotlight card, using Darkroom Door's Butterflies Background Red Rubber Cling Stamp and my oft-used, and dearly beloved, Wellbeing Stencil.
