- Spritz water on to a craft mat and sop up with clean pad
- Place now wet pad on to your distress inked panel, holding in place for a few seconds, remove and wipe the blending pad to remove any colour.

Hmm, perhaps not my BEST choice of project to try this technique on OR my best choice of colours. Having finished playing I concluded it might work better with a greater range of light to dark colours AND perhaps a project I wasn't planning to cover up so much of!! At least, in the photo above, you can see the blocking despite the fact it hardly shows up in the finished ATC! Ah well, the benefits of hindsight!!!
Here are the duplicate materials as I shall send them to my Isle of Skye buddy - wonder whether her make will look ANYTHING like mine?!?!?!
Have a fab day - hope the weather is better where you are - it's raining here and seems set to do so ... all blooming day!
