When I first saw these new stamps from the Sara Davies Signature Just For Men collection from Crafter’s Companion, I thought they would be great for creating backgrounds, and they worked perfectly for this male teen card.
To create the background pattern, I used a tutorial from the Spectrum Noir website for creating patterned paper using Spectrum Aqua markers (tutorial can be seen HERE). Instead of mixing the colors, however, I used a single color for each stamping of the image, rotated the stamp each time and overlapped previous impressions.
