The design team have done a great job with it!
I altered my background by scrunching up a piece of tissue paper (I used a vintage sewing pattern) and pasting it onto my cardstock. I then painted over it with gesso and used a variety of mists and masks to create a random design.
I created my background using a mask with white acrylic paint.
I altered my background with mist (love that stuff!) and a cute stamp. Don't worry about lining up the stamp edges perfectly...and it's fun to use the stamp a couple of times without re-inking.
I challenged myself to alter my background with something I don't use very often - rub-ons! I used gold metallic rub-ons in a punchinella (sequin waste) style by Glitz Designs. I moved the rub-on sheet around as I went, so the transfer is more free-form than the design on the sheet. I misted a bit over the rub-ons, too
