I admit i am into backgrounds. I love building up slow layers of color and texture. This cool technique falls right into that love. Today i am sharing how to use distress inks, stamps, and water to create this uber fun layer.
Here’s the final piece. After completing the background, i stamped the awesome leaf stamp again in citrus ink. It is a Cocoa Daisy stamp that is sold out. I have heard “rumors” that they just may be bringing it back for a second release. I then stamped the word grow in archival black ink and placed the die cut under it. I added in some cream butterflies and journaled around the edges. You can see the “ghosted” stamp in the background creating beautiful depth in the layers. I hope you have fun trying out this technique. Please share if you create something, I would love to see it!
