Creating backgrounds with inks~

Hi guys!
I have a couple cards to share using Distress Oxide inks and
Darkroom Door Stamps.  Creating interesting
backgrounds for cards is half the fun! The other half is
the stamping:):)
I used mixed media paper as the background paper.  I started
with two different colors of Distress Oxide ink and then
added a third color.  Water down the ink and run the paper through the
ink, dry with heat tool and then repeat until you get the look you want.
Tim Holtz has some really great tutorials on this technique on his
You Tube channel.

The stamped images are added next, colored (Distress Oxide Ink) and then
the background is stenciled. Easy technique!!!
The stamps (Darkroom Door) used in this card set is as follows:
Fine Flowers Vol.2
Lots of Labels
Fine Leaves
Warm Wishes

Brick Wall Stencil/ small
Adhesive used:
Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L:
E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser
