Be Awesome

This afternoon I thought I would make some backgrounds from Distress Oxides
and then have a play with some of my newly acquired stamps.

Using 'spiced marmalade', 'fossilized amber', 'broken china' and 'twisted citron'
I inked up my craft mat, spritzed the colours with water
and smooshed some white cardstock through,
thus creating some one of a kind backgrounds.

Once the background had dried, I cut it down to 9cm x 11cm
which was the perfect size for the stamp I had in mind.

The image was inked and stamped directly onto the background
and again a second time onto white card.

This 'awesome' little character was coloured with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut 
and adhered over the first image.

The background was given a black mat to compliment the inky colours.
