Thanks for Bringing Sunshine!

Newton’s Nook is my new stamp addiction! Lots of cute images and they stamp cleanly — no blurred or broken lines. The style is simple and perfect for CAS cards.  And speaking of clean and simple, I struggle with backgrounds. All that bright white behind the images seems so — well, white! Jennifer Dove’s tutorial on coloring backgrounds and grounding the image has lots of great suggestions.
