Weekly Challenge #9 – Technique

Here’s my take on this week’s challenge which was using a technique. I chose to do the Batik’s technique. The instruction will be below the supplies list that is used for this project. In this one,I had combined 2 things – Batik technique and the Color Combo Challenge (3/10).

Supplies Used: 
Kit: Key to my Heart (retired)
Stamp set: Butterfly Wings (D1341)
Cardstocks: White & Desert Sand
Inks: Sorbet, Desert Sand, Goldrush, Creme Brulee & Versamark
Accessories: Sorbet Ribbon Rounds, Foam Sponges, Water Spray Bottle & Clear EP 
Sketch is based on page 49 from Wishes Book (This was modified to fit to 6 x 6 card)
Instruction for the Batik Techniques (I don’t recall where I got this because this was in one big words document).
VersaMark and Card Stock Batik Method 
Supplies: VersaMark pad, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Brayer, Kaliedacolor Pad, Card Stock, Water Spritz bottle, 

1. Simply stamp your image using Versamark on ultrasmooth white or confetti or some other light CS.
2. Then emboss with clear embossing powder. Let cool.
3. Then gently wad paper into a ball or you could fold it into a small square for a different look.
4. Unfold it and smooth it out. It will have crease marks now. Place it on a towel and mist with water so the paper is very damp.
5. Next ink your brayer with a Kaleidacolor pad (or a B&J pad) and brayer across the paper.
6. The image will stay white while the ink will seep into cracks and the rest of the paper will have a batik look. (Like back in the 70’s when you applied wax to a pattern on a shirt and then dipped it in dye, cooled and chipped the wax away. Like far out man!)
