Duplicate background stamping

For this project I used Gina K inks in Red Hot, Turquoise Sea and Moonlit Fog to repeatedly stamp a square spellbinders stamp in alternate colours.

I used a diagonal strip MFT rubber background stamp to stamp one way in Turquoise Sea ink and then I turned the cardstock 90 degrees and stamped again in Ocean Mist ink.  This created a diagonal gingham pattern.

I die cut the word Celebrate from part of the gingham pattern and also cut it again three times from black cardstock.  These were layered together and adhered to a strip of some of the same gingham pattern.   

Underneath is stamped Happy Christmas white heat embossed and foam mounted.

Some silver drops have been added to the centre of the grey stamped images.

I will be entering this into the typography card challenge at Cards in Envy  http://cardsinenvy.blogspot.com/
