Crinkle Background Card

Hi crafters!  Here's a cool technique that you can do with Lustre Polish to add an interesting effect to your backgrounds.  You just need a bit of cling film.

 The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, a really lovely card with amazing colours. I liked your description of the background looking like elephant skin :-) Priscilla looks great and she didn't even mind being chopped up!

What a stunning card. Can’t wait to try this technique. I didn’t realise that if it was put on in a thick layer the cling film technique would work. Thank you sue for all your inspiration & the great video.
