Eroded Metallics Backgrounds

Nellie over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge wants us to share a favorite background technique.  I've got lots of favorites, but this is a new one I recently tried - Eroded Metallics, originally shared by Tim Holtz, uses distress paints and water.  I also love to use old book pages and add some color to them for a background.  I've combined both techniques in these ATCs.

Thanks for taking a peek.  Cheers!


  1. Love how you have used the butterflies off the edge Julie and the colour palette is just beautiful :-) xxx

  2. A great duo of background techniques, Julie! Great art, as you have shared here, need great beginnings! Well done!


I'm sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what you think about this post. Have a spectacular day!
