My base started as Bristol paper covered with Distress ink.
To get the cream color for the challenge, I swiped on some white gesso (the gesso absorbed some of the brown underneath). After that I scribbled into it while still wet with the pointy end of a paintbrush.
The flowers (by Rubber Dance) were also colored with Distress inks and white gel pen. The little grid in the upper right corner is a die cut that I covered with Distress Paint (brass and gold). Last addition was a bit of green thread and sticker quote.
Thanks for swinging by today. Check out the Rubber Dance monthly challenge HERE.
