You will need:
card background cut to desired shape
peel off stickers
Lightly arrange your chosen stickers onto your background card. Do not press them too firmly or you may risk tearing your cardstock when you remove them! On this occasion I am using an image I have coloured and cut out but you can also use this technique by masking your image and then following this step.
If you wish to have a white border around the final piece place your nestability die cut over card.
Taking your sponge applicator, lift some ink from the distress ink pad and remove excess by sponging onto a non stick craft sheet. Then begin to ink the cardstock, starting at the edges and working inwards, going over the stickers.
4. Remove the die cut and your card will look like this.
Now, carefully remove the stickers, so as not to make any tears on the cardstock. This is the finished background. Here it is with the image added onto a card. As you can see, the "st" stickers I added were to create my "1st" when I added a die cut number 1.
