simple wet wipe painting

Hi lovely crafty friends, today I have a super-fast technique to colour backgrounds. I think this is one of the most simple and fun ways to use paint for colouring a background.

I love this technique, and today I give it a fun twist by adding one more step.

In the video, I give some tips on how to get the best result, to make some amazing colourful cards. By adding one more step you can take this technique to a new level.

Ranger Ink – Texture Paste – Transparent Matte ( SBC | RNG )
and Transparent Gloss ( SBC | RNG )

The paste looks exactly the same when you apply it you can see the effect just after drying.

You can just add the colours randomly and keep adding until the background is filled. You can leave parts open too if you like, I like my background fully coloured:-)
