Creating background magic with Altenew Background stamps

I am once again back this month with my another step towards my AECP course Completion. 

Today I have created a card using the Altenew background Stamp Pinstripe. For this wonderful technique I would like to give credit to the awesome lady Laurel Beard for sharing her knowledge through her class about using background stamps in different forms. 

Here is my card.

For making this card I have used a piece of Vellum where I stamped with my Pinstrip Stamp using versafine and white embossing powered. Now here is a trick I rotated the same stamp 90 degree and stamped again using versamark and white embossing powder. ( Since it was already stamped and embossed once so i have few blank spaces in between which added extra features to it when I heat embossed it again.) 

Once the embossing is cooled down I used my Altenew Artist markers Mango Smootie and Ruby red on the embossed side of the vellum ( I know I have also used a blue but later on I did not like how blue turned so I cut that out from my final card view LOL ) . Once all colored I took rubbing alcohol in my spray bottle and sprayed onto the vellum which is why you can see in the picture it was bit curled. Then to get the final picture I trimmed out the blue and got this mat on a back cardstock to put them on a neenah solar white card base. 

For My sentiments I have cut out word happy ( Scripty word 2 ) on a foam and also on a white cardstock. And my birthday stamp is heat embossed with white from Birthday Builder Stamps.

Hope you all like the card. Please do not forget to leave me your beautiful comments.
