Default Creating a random background.

Since I was asked how I created the background for my July sketch card,I thought it best to post the youtube link from where I learned this technique, demosnstrated by artist and teacher, Diana Trout. Watch her other videos to learn other cool stuff.
The trick is to let each layer of paint dry before adding another. I use black pigment ink or a solvent ink, to stamp over acrylic paints. You can also use watercolours randomly using a brush.

I have posted here some of my other work using the credit/plastic card method:
