It's all about the background

Last week I finally got my inky fingers on the distress inks doing the happy dance lol and I know everyone has there new favourite colours for me it's the seedless preserves and iced spruce.
The Artistic Stamper wants to see backgrounds and Let's Ink it Up want to see a favourite techniques .
I've used Iced spruce for the background then stamped with bleach then used the Spun Sugar distress stain another fav as half the bottles gone all ready some White D stain dabed on with my finger then stamped with the Seedless preserves.
I could have dressed it up more but I like it the way it is :)
