I’ve just started stamp­ing and would love some tips on adding a back­ground to my char­ac­ters – they never look quite fin­ished with white card all around them! Wendy Marks, Birm­ing­ham

Dorothy: You could draw a blue line or a faux-stitched ef­fect around the im­age. If you place a Post-it note as a mask over the char­ac­ter you can also sponge a back­ground across the card. Adding a cir­cle to cre­ate a moon be­hind the char­ac­ters also works well. How about stamp­ing onto coloured card or kraft card? Stamps are of­ten sold with co­or­di­nat­ing dies to let you cre­ate top­pers, which can add an­other di­men­sion to the card. You could also dab ink onto a Te­flon sheet and spritz with wa­ter to cre­ate back­ground papers!
