I wanted to create an oxide/ink background with my shades of pink Distress.  I think this was my third try.  Sometimes you have to toss a few away before you get it just right....LOL!  I'm happy with it.  My niece is due to have her twins very soon.  Bet you can't guess what she's having.... :-)  

Distress Ink - Spun Sugar
Distress Oxide - Worn Lipstick, Tattered Rose, Hickory Smoke
Strathmore water color paper
Tim Holtz - Christmas Blueprint 2 stamp set
