Technique Tuesday: Layered Stamping {With Bo Bunny Background Stamps!}

I've been meaning to scrap this photo of Chloe and her friends that I took at Wonderland this past summer.  I wanted to go with a more stylized design so I thought I'd play with the new Background stamps from Bo Bunny.  So I thought I'd share with you a little step by step on how I layer the new background stamps to create a unique and fun page design. I love the new background stamp designs and for the above page I combined a number of my favorite new stamps. In a few easy steps you can create a page that is different from any out there. 
I began with a piece of Bo Bunny Cardstock, here I used the ledger design paper in the Chiffon color. I trimmed off about a quarter inch from the outside edges so that when I later mount the paper on a patterned paper you'll have a nice peek of the paper behind, framing the design. Lightly ink the edges with some chalk ink (I used a brown and a grey chalk ink).
The next step is to begin creating a soft frame around the edges using the chicken wire stamp from the Distressed Textures stamp collection. Try stamping the design a little heavier in the corners, lighter along the edges. I also used one of crest stamps from the Prairie Chic collection in the top left corner. 
Next I marked in pencil the placement of my photo and inked all around the edges of it in a random pattern. I used Versa Magic 'Sea Breeze' and 'Aloe Vera' chalk inks.
Here's the fun part! I started stamping around the edges of the frame of my photo, over-top of the inked area's with a variety of background stamps. I used the Geometric Patterns stamps, On This Day stamp collection and the Stained Textures stamp (I love the water ring stamps!). As you can see I had a little mishap when I stamped the checker design on the right side of my page (I accidently dropped the stamp lol...but no worries, you can always work around it with some strategic placement of your embellishments).

Finish up by adding your photo and embellishing with the beautiful coordinating stickers, blooms, chipboard, buttons and trinkets that go with the Mama-razzi2 collection. Mount your stamp designed paper on a coordinating piece of patterned paper and you have yourself a special page that is your own unique design!
