Ugh! People!

When you're having fun .... keep going!

That's what I've been doing with these Distress Oxide backgrounds.
Each one is unique and random and it is so easy to make a quick card when 
you don't need to think twice about the background.

This little chap  rat looks a bit worried - I wonder if he is being chased by 'people', or even worse?

I know rats aren't usually blue/green, however I wanted him to stand out from the background
and it seems to suit him.

I gave the background a quick spritz with water to age it slightly, 
and ran a fine black pen around the edges for a border.

Ratty is coloured with my usual favourite Prismacolor pencils
and a piece of washi tape in almost the same colours as the background,
helps to ground him.

I know I've been using black mats on white cards a lot lately,
but with the lovely bright colours of the Distress Oxides,
I think the black compliments the backgrounds very well.

I bought some Dylusions paint pens yesterday, along with a new stamp and co-ordinating stencil
so I think a play might be in order.
Happy Crafting!
