Tutorials
Jan. 27- Finger Paint Book Marker by Sandy
Jan. 28- Water Background by Pat

MFP Stamps - Oh Crab

Here's how I made the background
You will need white card stock and Distressed ink pads.
Start with the lightest color and sponge ink around the card stock.
Continue adding color making the bottom darker and leaving it lighter in the center.
Now you will need a bowl of water.
Put you fingers in the water.
Flick your fingers at the card stock being careful to keep the dropping of water smaller.
Let it dry.
