Cold Laminate Technique

This rather simple card was done with the cold laminate technique.
That is where you add photos or pieces of catalogs, even
stamped images to some laminate and soak it in cold water for about 15 minutes.
Then you just rub until the paper comes off and your images are part of the laminate.
Allow it to air dry and then the fun begins.

At that point you can brush on some powders or paints, you can sprinkle glitter
or add inclusions...the sky is the limit!

I did a very simple card for this.  I stamped the image by 
Inkblocks (which may be found over at I Brake For Stamps) onto 
some paper.
After I had the image transferred to the laminate (by soaking)
I brushed some paints over the back for a scene...of sorts.
Layered and affixed and that is it.
Very very simple.
