I cut a piece of Ranger Watercolor paper. I used three colors of Distress Stain and water to create the background, then dried it with a Heat it Tool.
You may notice I went back and added more red Distress Marker to some of the smaller shapes for a bit more detail.
For those of you in the Dallas area, I am teaching three classes at Stamp Asylum in Plano on Aug 15th and 16th. You can contact the store for more details.
