I can't resist a technique challenge. Over at Quirky Crafts Challenges this week the challenge is to create your own background papers, no designer papers are allowed. Yippee, another opportunity to get in a mess. I started with a plain piece of white card. Blended in several TH Distress Inks, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Broken China, I then sprayed some water over the card, left a few seconds then dabbed off to create the splattered bleached effect. I sprayed a fine mist of Glitz Spray which sadly doesn't show on the picture. using Memento I stamped twice with a Penny Black stamp - Garden Poems. Coloured it in using the same Distress Inks as a watercolour paint. Added a Sheena Douglass greeting stamp, completed with a nice white ribbon with a silver edge.
