Backtracking today and sharing something that I created a while back for Scrapbook Creations Issue 104 for their colour challenge. I have had a play with Dylusions Ink Sprays and water for creating the background effect on the white cardstock.

To recreate a similar background effect:
Position a Prima Turkish Grunge stencil over the top of the cardstock and spray with Calypso Teal and Green Grass. Concentrate on the areas where the photo and embellishment is going to be and alternate the colours leaving areas of space between the colours. Remove the stencil and then spray over the coloured areas with water. Use paper towel to blot up the areas of excess and to soften. when dry apply extra masked detail with white gesso paint randomly - I used a stencil with circles for this.

Chipboard elements were painted white and then also misted with Calypso Teal and Green Green. Spray a small amount each of the colours onto a non slip craft mat, position the chipboard piece over the top and then twist/rotate around to create a swirly, variegated effect of the colours.

Thanks for dropping by,
Till next time,
