No one was more surprised by this card than I was!
I purposely crinkled the waxed paper diagonally only, from bottom left corner to upper right. I felt that would give me "stripes" rather than crinkles going in all directions.
I used the wax paper on glossy white cs and brayered over it with basic black ink. I expected a white and black "striped" card. I got a purple and black card! Where'd my white go? Okay, now I have to take this thing in a whole new direction... but that's half the fun, huh? My cards rarely end up looking the way I pictured them in my head when I started. I assume the wax paper absorbs some of the pigment from the black ink and that's why I got purple? Anyway, now that the shock wore off, I kinda like it. :)
