Enjoyable Scrunching - Annette Goatley (nettyscraftings)

This month we are using water in our projects so thought I would show you how I made the background for this card.

First I took a sheet of A4 good quality copy paper and spray misted it with water,  swiped it over with Distress Inks, then scrunched it all up.  Rollered out and it looked like this. (If you haven't got a Speed Roller a Rolling Pin will do)

After it was dry, added some more Distress Inks then let that dry.  Finally I added Inka Gold and Inka Copper rubbing it into the paper.

Other products used: Embossing Folder, T Holtz Die Cut, Ribbons from Stash and Gold Stickles.
Stamp by: Lost Coast Designs - The Swimsuit Girl

Altered the Swimsuit to a Dress with the left over Scrunched Paper, pretty neat don't you

You can have so much fun with water and it doesn't have to be difficult to get a smashing effect.
Looking forward to seeing your creations for the challenge.
Take care and will see you soon, Hugs Annette x
