I've spent a very enjoyable afternoon playing and being messy!!!
And here is the result!!!
I covered my craft mat in splodges of blue ink - Marina Mist,
Night of Navy, Baja Blue and Bashful Blue - spritzed it with water
and smeared a sheet of Whisper White card all over it!
I then ironed it to dry it and stamped this fabulous boat -
Sail Away - in Night of Navy.
And here are the cards I made!
This method of creating backgrounds is very effective
and works very well with this stamp.
