Pictured are a few test
backgrounds using Decoart gesso,
acrylic paint and watercolour
sticks.
This technique had been
completed on 300 gsm cardstock.
This particular example was
placed into spritzed Brick Red
Distress ink after the background
was completed.
This example was sanded with
fine 180 grade sandpaper after the
background was applied to reveal
highlights of White gesso.
The tutorial featured will show
you the background technique that
I have used,

1. Apply one coat of gesso to the
cardstock and dry with a heat tool.
2. Water down some American
Royal Fuchsia and apply over the
gesso and dry.
3. Pick up a little True Red onto a
flat brush and work randomly
over the surface.
4. Once dry, scribble randomly
with a orange watercolour stick.

5. Dip a watercolour brush into
some clean water and blend the
orange slightly into the other
colours.
6. Next I have stamped a crackle
background using Brilliance
Mineral.
7. Pick up some Chipped Saphire
Distress ink onto a blending tool
and lightly blend onto the edges
of the tag.
8. Continue to stamp background
until happy with the result.
