H2H Challenge - Random stamping for dads

Ok, this is gonna be crazy because i am gonna do a bunch of posts around the next 2 days. I have the spotlight post going up tomarrow and I created two cards for card idol that i need to post. plus this one. wooo. my blog hasnt seen this much action for a while.

Well, on to this post. H2H is asking use to random stamping to use on our fathers day cards. What is random stamping? its exactly like it sounds like. you use your stamps randomly (as random as you can be being a artist) on to cardstock to make your own background paper.

the pattern paper on the bottom was made by random stamping.I used stamps from Enjoy Life and Backgrounds and Borders. The top pattern paper was also stamped. The only pattern paper I actually used was for the 'ribbon' strip. Even the sentiment was made with 3 different stamps. And the journal spot was stamped. I was a stampoholic on this card

I was inspired by this card on the Hero Arts Blog
