Less is More challenge to reach 1000 entries. I have tried another technique from the Sue Wilson DVD - faux batik. My card is made using the first piece you can see, where I actually remembered the technique wrongly! However, I thought it looked ok, the second piece is the technique applied correctly and you can see the effect is much better, that will appear on a later card.... Basically you clear emboss your design and use the resist technique, but BEFORE! you do, spritz the paper with water and fold, then roll the ink over. The bottle I used to spritz had some glittery wash in it beforehand,
it didn't quite all get washed out so everything now has a subtle sparkle to it.
