Hi Everyone! It is Karen McAlpine visiting from Dreaming and Creating today. I am back with another faux fabric technique. Today, I will show you how to create projects using a Faux Batik technique. This is the card we will be making today.
You will need the following Supplies to complete this project:
Stamps: Painted Butterflies Set from Blockheads Paper Arts
Cardstock: White and three shades of rose/wine
Ink Reinkers: Distress Reinkers Tattered Rose , Memento Reinker Rhubarb Stalk
VersaMark ink pad
Clear Embossing Powder
Spray bottle with water
Scrap sheets of paper
Wax paper or a craft sheet
Rubber Gloves -optional
Start off with a white piece of cardstock. Stamp the large butterfly on the white CS with VersaMark ink several times.
Heat with a heat gun to emboss.
I decided to go with Wine and Rose shades of CS to complete my project.
I wanted to keep the card on the simple side to showcase the Batik Paper. You can see how easily your projects will go together once your Batik Paper is made. For this project, I layered the CS and added a wide sheer ribbon and three gem stickers. If you would like to see more samples of the Batik Paper, hop over to my Blog.
I have more samples that used White embossing powder and I made up two more cards from the Batik Papers. Check them out and tell me which one is your favorite. Thank you for joining me for this tutorial and I hope you will give this technique a try. It really is easy and fun. I will be back in a few weeks with another tutorial. I will see if I can come up with another faux fabric technique. See you then.
