It's easy to create fun backgrounds by stamping with a pencil eraser dabbed in ink. Pair the pencil eraser background technique with a sunburst stencil, and you'll have a card that is certain to brighten someone's day!

To create this card, I started by cutting out my stencil using the Big Shot and Sunburst Thinlits Die out of scrap card stock.
I laid the stencil over my Whisper White card front and started adding ink using the eraser of a pencil. I dabbed the eraser onto an ink pad, then stamped around the stencil. I cleaned the eraser by swiping it onto my worksheet, then picked up the next color.
Colors used were Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Peek a Boo Peach, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry.
After finishing, I removed the stencil and then sponged on a mixture of Crushed Curry, So Saffron and Peekaboo Peach inks around the eraser dots.
I stamped my greeting from Sunburst Sayings onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Cajun Craze ink. I then punched it out using my 1 1/4" circle punch. The greeting was then layered onto a 1 3/8" Crushed Curry circle, 1 3/4" Crumb Cake circle and finally a 2" Cajun Craze circle.
Clear Wink of Stella was brushed all over the card front to add a little shimmer.
Stamping with a pencil eraser is fun and easy. And the possibilities are endless!
