CC Madden with inky backgrounds

Hello friends!! Showcase Farmer Veronica here, sharing two cards with CC Madden. Isn't she cool or what?

The banner says "Thinking of you".

Wanna know how I did the background? I started with coloring the stamped images then I made a mask by stamping the same image on a post it note and cut it out.

I placed the post it Madden over my colored Madden and stamped Splotchy with different distress inks. 

When I was pleased with the "splatter" I used my blending tool, a little ink and worked it from the post it note and out (as you can see in the right side of the image).

I made another card with the same stamp and the same layout. I'ts pretty cool to see how different two "same" cards can be with other colors and patterned papers.

I hope you all have a wonderful day!!
