SAWO-Distressed Gesso BG

Another new technique for me at Saturday's Workout challenge today. You can find the tutorial for this technique here. The inks I used are TH distress in peeled paint and faded jeans on glossy cardstock.

That background turned out beautifully! I love how you used the postage stamp for your catch!

KatieScarlett said...

Bee-yoo-tee-ful! I love the subtleness and the color combination - especially with the theme. My absolute favorite!

KatieScarlett said...

A question - what did you use to achieve the linen-y/crackle-y background look? Is it a stamp?

Thanks!

Sarah said...

Katie Scarlett, I used the cheesecloth backgrounder stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms.

KatieScarlett said...

Thanks! I looke at CHF backgrounders but I think I missed the cheesecloth. A muuuuch better choice than linen or burlap. Perfect!
