Try It Tuesday - make your own DSP

This technique is fantastic if you don't have the perfect Designer Series Paper in your stash to make a project. This technique can be used for all of your paper craft projects and only takes a few minutes to do.
The products you will need are: Cardstock (I used crumb cake), ink pads (Crumb cake, old olive and real red used here), stamp sets and a stamping sponge.

Step One: Ink up your background stamp with the crumb cake ink, place the cardstock on top and rub your hands over the cardstock - you may like to place a scrap of paper over the top to avoid getting ink on your hands.

Step Two: Stamp the images at random over the cardstock. I used all three colours and four different stamps to create the background. The have all over lapped and you don't need to worry too much about stamp placement. The idea is to try and fill in as much of the background as possible.

Step Three: Sponge the edges using a stamping sponge.

Here is the finished product. To save time you can stamp a whole A4 or 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock to cut up and use. Any stamp sets and colour combinations can be used.

I will complete the project and upload the photo later.
