May this year be your best ever

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

I've seen a couple of people use a technique where they use their distress markers to quickly apply a background and then spritz it with water.  That's what I did here with some distress markers. 

Some areas are a bit better blended than others but this was a lot of fun and I'd like to do it again.  I wanted a big bold sentiment for the card and thought this one from MFT did the trick.

You did a great job with this technique, Alanna! Sometimes the colored and blended blocks of color are then splattered by water spots, too, which is a nice affect. I love the bold sediment you used, too! Hugs, Darnell
