Start with a standard 2.5"x3.5" ATC base of any color.

Choose 4-5 (or more) pieces of ephemera that are either official idea-o-logy products, true vintage, or vintage reproduction look.

Lay your ATC on a non-stick surface and apply a layer of Distress collage medium with a brush. Place a piece of ephemera on the ATC and cover with another layer of Distress collage medium but change direction of your brush stroke. Continue placing ephemera in a collage style, follow by a layer of distress collage medium with opposite brush stroke...until all pieces are used and card is completely covered. On the final layer create brush strokes going up and down, left and right, diagonally, etc. Then allow to completely dry.

Once dry, apply a single color of distress crayon to the ATC and use finger to smudge around so that it gathers in the crevices created by brush strokes. The crayon medium should move pretty easily without water, if not then touch your finger to a wet wipe and try again. You do NOT want to add a spritz or even a drop of water to the ATC for this technique. Continue with as many colors of distress crayon as you like until you're happy with the result.
