Okay so this is still day 1 of the USA Twitter challenge as you get a day to play catch up. So another of the techniques shown in class was to create a background using an acrylic block, distress inks and water.
This is the colour pallet I chose for an atc swap on the PaperPlay forum.
I used the same technique for the backgrounds with the acrylic block. I used salty ocean, ripe persimmon, broken china, wild honey and spiced marmalade distress ink. I stamped all the images in stazon, mustard, pumpkin, ultramarine and hydrangea blue.
