The background on this card was created with Ranger Distress Spray Stains. I sprayed the stains onto the Ranger craft sheet, moved it around with the finger and pressed the already water misted watercolor paper to it. I also misted it with water again to lighten up the colors and heat dried the panel.
I then stamped the images in the right corner and decided the pink on the left needed a better reason to be there and the stamped image helped fit it into the scene. The stains are a fast and easy way to create a colorful background.
