Distress backgrounds

Morning! I thought I'd share a recent card that I made for my nephew. Boys can be such a challenge especially when cute or character are not options. It reminded me of the images of deep space. The background is distress inks which was spritzed with water to create texture. Layers were then added with fob watch stamp and sentiment (clarity I think) and white acrylic paint. Sequin waste was used as a mask on add the dots and the whole thing finished with a spritz of Luminarte radiant rain. A sentiment topper (embossed with clear deep embossing powder) was then added.

The insert was a collage of images of my nephew doing the things he enjoys.
