Collage material (ie. old greeting cards)
Swipe ink pads along cardstock in various directions.
With watered down acrylic paint, brush paint over complete background.
Glue collage items on background, and stamp images.
Continue adding collage pieces until satisfied. Once you added all your images, take a stiff, dry brush, and lightly cover areas of your cardstock. When you dip your brush into the paint, pat it on a paper towel to take most of the paint off. This is called "dry brushing." Dry brushing is a wonderful, and easy, way to distress.
