Kim O'Connell checkin' in to bring you a quick tutorial on creating backgrounds with distress inks!
I started with a 4" square piece of white card stock. I secured it to my craft mat with a bit of adhesive. I the cut the black piece of card stock to me my template for my rolling hill of grass and sky. You need both of the pieces of card stock.
I layered the bottom black piece of card stock over my white card stock and secure it with some tape. I sponged on my sky with Tim Holtz salty ocean and tumbled glass distress inks.
Now I used the other piece of black card stock and covered my sky. I secured it with tape and sponged on my grassy hill with Tim Holtz mowed lawn and crushed olive distress inks.
And now that you have your background, you can add your image.
I colored up the cute new Pollycraft Millie and fussy cut her out. I used a die from the Make a Card #4 die set for the sentiment flag and stamped a sentiment from the Chilled Out sentiment stamp set.
