Many of my cards I make for no particular reason – just because I can. I was experimenting with a watercolour background, dribbling re-inkers across some plastic wrap, spritzing with water, then laying watercolour card face down over it. Fold the ends of the plastic wrap over the back of the card then flip over. Squish the inks around under the plastic with your fingertips until the desired coverage is achieved. You can lift the plastic off at this point or leave it on until completely dry. The idea is that the wrinkles in the plastic will leave distinctive marks on the paper and create an interesting edge that would be hard to achieve otherwise. See blue sample shown below. ¬†For some reason mine didn’t work today. The re-inkers are a little too intense I think. Not to worry, it didn’t go to waste:)

The stamps are from Stamp-it.
