newsprint technique

Today I experimented with another technique,
The 'newsprint' technique 
Please click onto one of the links above to read how to do this.
My embossing actually now looks a bit like the bleaching effect,
and it is brighter.  Another plus is you can then stamp over it all.
 Go check it out.

The colours in my tag are a reminder that the
summer holidays are just around the corner for my part
of the world. The blue and green resemble the colours of the
sea and surf and the off white resembles the sand.

Stamps used are both from Rubber Dance called
Clear embossing powder and Distressed Inks were used.


Challenge
Rubber Dance .....theme as below


Simon Wednesday....emboss it


My previous post today for Bugaboo GDT can be viewed below this one.
If you wish to do so, ok if not.

A lovely tag with a great technique. I knew it already, but thank you for reminding me, I have to use it again in the near future! Have a lovely weekend, Annie!

Great technique, Annie - thanks for the links - "back in the day (some 12-13 years ago), we called this technique "batik". It was the only time many of us used an iron LOL It's really a great look, and different "feels" are achieved according to the color of embossing powder and/or underlying ink used.

LOVELY tag, and such beautiful shapes and colors! Just like your lanai! hugs, de

Annie that is gorgeous and you are ALWAYS doing something new. For me, I seem to forget so everyday seems new, hehe. I shouldn't laugh since my kids will get me a diagnosis of Alzheimer Disease just so they can control me and my $$$ and then I won't be able to afford my craft supplies.
