I used a couple of fun techniques on this card today. To make my own background paper, I smooshed my distress ink pads and stains onto my craft paper and then laid my paper over it, moving it around until I had it covered pretty well. Here are several tutorials on how to do that (Ink Spray Smash Technique, HERE& HERE). The feathers were made using paper made with watercolors while the hexagons were made with ink pads and stains instead of sprays... same method though. I also did a little bit of inlaid die-cutting.
