One style of Background Stamp that is always versatile and useful in almost any project is the French Script Background. Our Creative Team has put together a range of projects to show how this stamp can be used. Here's the stamp we're talking about:
The French Script Background Stamp is large enough to cover a full 6" x 4" card (as with all of our background stamps) so it's a big stamp! And yet, it can be used on smaller projects too like Artist Trading Cards, dominos, chipboard pieces or any other embellishment. The script itself is small and fine, so it doesn't overpower any image and sits quietly in the background, or can be used as the main feature - either way, it's nice and easy to use!
Let's check out what the Creative Team created with this stamp...
Michelle created a set of Artist Trading Cards using the French Script as the background:
Sarah has used the French Script as the background to her card:
Jill has stamped the French Script onto fabric and created a beautiful mixed media piece with lots of texture and detail:
And I (Rachel) used the French Script to cover the entire base of a card in one go:
I designed the stamp horizontally so you can cover an horizontal card in one press. If you were creating a vertical card, you simply stamp the script once, re-ink the stamp and stamp again under the first. It's MUCH easier to line up the stamp this way rather than if I had designed the stamp vertically (where you'd then need to stamp it side by side to cover a horizontal card.) Does that make sense? Don't worry - there's always a method to my madness, so trust me on this one :)
So there's a couple of ideas on how to use the French Script Background! Hope it's inspired you!
