For the background of these cards I used the gesso technique shown by Liesbeth Fidder in the November edition of Craft Stamper. The result looks like an artexed ceiling! I sprayed the gesso with Dylusions which is fine until you use glue then the inks re-wet and you have to be careful not to get it on your fingers and transfer it to where you really didn't want it. Obviously from that remark you've guessed I did just that!
