I"m posting for Biblical Impressions today. I love the faux batik techinique, even if I am not trying for that look, it's just a fun to invert stamping images. For this card, I stamped Biblical's sunflower background in dark yellow, than embossed the plaids over it. Then I sponged yellows and butterscotch over the panel, finishing by ironing off the clear embossing. I embossed the medium sunflower with yellow, restamped it with die ink, stamped "Hi" on it (oops, this is a Eureka stamp), and cut it out with decorative scissors.

As often happens when I experiment, even after several tries, I did not get the look I had envisioned, but I still was happy with how it looked in the end. I've included a picture of the first time I did it before adding the yellows and butterscotch, and then that panel and another that I also tried that I did not use. How would you have done it?


  1. This is just beautiful! I love yellow!

  2. Really like the look of this technique!!

  3. You come up with the coolest techniques. I love this! In fact I love all the different takes on it. Very nice! And the color is so bright and happy!
