#3 - How to Make A Stamped Shabby Chic Layout

I recently got a set of stamps from this new company , Something Tattered. I love the story behind the company:

When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper. In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west. In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper. In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle. We hope you will share the passion.

Isn't that cool?! Knowing the story behind the wallpaper stamps, I wanted to create a scrapbook page with no patterned paper, whatsoever. 

This page uses stamping to make the background and then Izink, water, and Smooch Spritz to make a "coffee spill" effect for ths Urth Caffe themed page:
