Backgrounds made by scribbling with Tom Bow markers onto an acrylic block, then spritzing heavily with water before stamping onto cardstock mat. Can use heat gun to dry the mat or just air dry. If you air dry, place mat between 2 pieces of printer paper and lay under a stack of books so the mat doesn't warp. When mat is dry, stamp image and sentiment in black. Add mat and card base.
