Color Wash

I made the background paper using distress inks. I rubbed some Barn Door, Burlap ink pads on a craft sheet then I added a few drops of Marigold, and a Green (forgot which one), spritzed with water and ran 120# White Pure Luxury card stock over it.

To get less color add more water or use all ink pads. The liquid drops really added mor color than I wanted. Since the color was intense I decided to stamp solid images. I really dislike covering custom backgrounds so I stamp directly to the paper without using layers on top of the background.

The stamp set used was Country Roads by Teresa Momber
