Blogger's Challenge 83: Duotone Resist


Today's Blogger's Challenge was a sketch challenge. Since yesterday was a "creative day" for me, I decided to add this to my (long) list of items to be completed.

The background on this card uses the Duotone Resist Technique from the February 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. The shade variation is very subtle in the background (and kind of hard to see in the picture, sorry!).

Beautiful results. I love the layout, and the technique. By the way your intro on the top right says a "6" page publication. I love my eight pages!
