I don't stamp directly on white cardstock as much as I would like to! Many may think this is either too simple of a technique or too boring....but you would be amazed at what you can make depending on the color you used and how you work the design....I usually like to keep my elements extremely simple and carefree.....
I think the emphasis is still keeping an open white surface but making the image your focal point and that's it, it shouldn't be cluttered in my opinion.
This card below (which I made a long time ago) also is another example of stamping on crisp white:
Today is a Halloween carnival and parade at my son's school.....I'll be joining him in a few hours for the fun! Hope you all have a great Halloween celebration! Stay safe!
