Background Technique - Using Cling Wrap, Splashes, and Silks - Fun Stampers Journey

I'm learning more and more as time goes by.   I have been a card maker for years, literally, and there is still so much to learn and to share too.   The other day I did a Facebook Live Feed showing how I created these backgrounds that I used to create the cards below.    Amazing what can be done with cling wrap, Journey Splashes, Journey Silks, and some water.
