CCC: City Lights

This week´s Tim Holtz technique over at Linda´s "Compendium of Curiosities Challenge" is Blended Batik - a quick and fun yet very effective technique! I love the crackled look of the embossed parts here! I´ve used a metallic dark blue paper for the main card with a lovely shimmer that my scanner isn´t able to show.
