More Fun with Twinkling H2Os

I was going a bit crazy yesterday afternoon, so decided to take a breather and play. The latest issue of the Technique Junkies newsletter (link on the sidebar) had the "Cling & Scrunch" technique. There were several suggested variations, but I decided to use it with my twinks. I've had them for about two years now, and I think I've used them more in the past six weeks or so than in all the previous months combined - it's kind of fun rediscovering what's in my stash!

So anyway, I started with plain old white cardstock, then misted it with water. I used my aquapainter to apply various colors of the TH2Os, layering them up and really saturating the paper. I then covered that with some crinkly plastic wrap and set the pieces aside to dry (that's the hardest part!).

I did one piece with really vibrant red and orange tones, then used Penny Black images. I love how it turned out, although it's definitely a departure from my usual.

I did the other one with greens and purples, and finished it out with the SU Stipple Hydrangea. I layered it with a piece embossed with the CB Script folder (swiped with ink to make it more noticeable).
I wish you could see just how lovely these are in person - I am including one detail shot of the hydrangea card just so you can get just a hint of the shimmer!

Absolutely gorgeous, Trish! I absolutely LOVE it!!! I wouldn't have thought that pink would work with the reds, but it does! Wow, I'll have to try this!
