These are also resists from Day 2 Online Card Class Background Check.
The Silhouette Grass stamp from Hero Arts shows the technique the best. First I applied the lighter shade of distress ink. I clear embossed the stamp over the inked cardstock. Then I applied three different inks over the embossing to create the ombre effect. Nice fall background! The waves stamp didn't show up as well with this technique. The old music background will be fun to work with.
