I’m working on a video for these… I hope to have it up soon and will add the link once it is complete. Until then, here is how I made the three backgrounds.


Card on the left: Was completed with the Distress Oxide Stamp pads and a blending foam. After blended, spray with water and allow inks to blend to be more seamless and allow to dry or dry with a heating tool.

Center card: Was completed with the Distress Spray Stains and water. Spray and allow inks to blend to create the desired result. Mine was done with many layers of spraying and drying to get the result I wanted.

Card on the right: Was completed with Distress Oxide Crayons. I scribbled the crayons on my glass mat. With the use of water, I “finger-painted” the colors onto the watercolor paper. Need a fun and easy craft for the kids this summer? Try this background. I paired it with a Funny Farm set at both the background and stamp look more child-created.
