Ranger Distress Markers, a piece of acetate and a Mini Mister with water to create these backgrounds. I learned the technique over at Split Coast Stampers - and it's called Smackin' Acetate!
Mini Mister filled with water. Then quickly place the acetate over your card front - colors down - and rub over the back of the acetate. Remove the acetate and VOILA - you have a cool background! I used a different number of 'spritz's' on each card - the less water you use - the more defined the marker strokes are. I used the most water on the card below. My sentiment is from MFT.
In case you can't read my little sentiment - it says "love is in the air". It's from Tiny Treats: Valentine by PTI.
