Donna here with the Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions. I choose Distress Oxide Cling Wrap Background and had a lot of fun with this. I hope you will enjoy my tutorial and give this technique a try. I will be posting more cards at a later date that I make with more of the fun backgrounds I created!

The supplies you will need are: cling wrap, Oxide Distress Inks, (you can substitute watercolor powders or watercolors), a spray bottle of water, watercolor paper (you can substitute a good quality glossy card stock).

I am going to explain two versions, both are fun and striking, the second version requires more time patience.

Version one:
1) Spread cling wrap on your work surface. Smoosh Distress Oxide inks on the cling wrap, on my second go round I did not overlap them as much and liked those results better.


2) Spritz liberally with water.


3) Set card stock (4 /1/4 by 5 1/2 “) on the ink. Press down and scrunch the cling wrap a bit.


4) Flip over and scrunch cling wrap up and add any more colors to achieve desired look and more of a scrunched look.


Second version:
After laying the cardstock down on the Distress Oxide Inks flip over and let dry completely, no heat tool, be patient.


Complete cards as desired:
Version 1 using Repeat Impressions 6113-W Life is not…


Version 2 using Repeat Impressions 9009-W Butterfly (sm) and 3404-C, Random Dots.


I hope you enjoyed this technique and will give it a try. I would enjoy seeing your creations!

  3. Oh this is a great technique! I’ll have fun putting this to good use!! Thanks for sharing it with us today!

  4. How pretty! This creates a really fun background! I think I prefer the second version as it is much bolder and the colors are more distinct.
