4. On white, die cut piece, ink blend Dried Marigold Distress Oxide, working lighter towards the bottom of the frame


5. Press Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide onto a piece of acetate or plastic packaging, and spritz with water. Turn over and press onto separate piece of white cardstock. Dry with heat tool. Repeat process with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide until you are happy with the background. Allow to dry completely.
