But I did not want to stamp the chevron pattern on the entire background, I wanted something more subtle so it does not overpower the card. After all I still wanted the frame and the flowers to be the focal point. How did I do that? Well, here is how:
Ink up a sponge on the ink pad.
Transfer the ink onto a limited area of the stamp with your sponge.
Place the card front on the stamp. Slightly rub over the card.
Voilà, done. Pretty easy and very effective.
