Ballerina Frills

I've been feeling inspired after trying out the water distressing technique to make flowers (see here) and I was wondering what else I could make, so I've had go at making some water-distressed frills and I'm really pleased with how they turned out.

I started out by cutting a 2cm strip from double sided patterned paper and folding it down the middle.

I sprayed it with the water bottle on both sides and then crumpled it up and left it to dry.

I put a line of strong double-sided tape on my page and crumpled the frill onto it as I stuck it down.

I'm wondering what else I can water-distress now?
