Easy background cards

 
Hi everyone - the current challenge at Country View Crafts is to make your own background. Today it is my turn to share a project. Why make one when you can make three!
All the cards began with inked white card in varying distress inks. I then placed a harlequin stencil over the card and spritzed with water. Kitchen roll is then placed over the top to remove excess water and, of course, some of the ink to create this fab effect.
I kept my embellishing simple as the backgrounds are quite bold!
Here are the other versions...

See you next time, thanks for stopping by.
