Batik Technique



In the May issue of Stampin' Success from Stampin' Up! They had some beautiful samples in there using the Batik technique. They has slightly different directions than what I learned from Beate on SCS but basically the same.
Stamp your image, preferable a bold image in versa mark ink on Mulberry paper. Emboss with clear EP. Mist paper with water and sponge on or use a dauber and die ink or craft ink over the embossed images. You can also use Watercolor Wonder Crayons or re-inkers and an aqua painter for this.
When you are finished adding the desired colors, then set you iron to warm/medium with no steam, place your project between two sheets of copy paper and iron to remove the embossing powder, it will stick/absorb onto the copy paper. Mount the finished batik image onto white cs and then finish your card. This is easy and fun, explore and experiment with colors, stamped images and I think you will be hooked.
