A Colorful Card Just Because...


Today I have a card that uses a technique called "Paper Batik." I found the tutorial here and just had to try making one of my own.

I stamped the SU! summer silhouettes images in versamark and then sponged on pear pizzazz, peacock feathers, and pretty in pink inks. The panel was cut with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die and placed on a black cardstock base. The sentiment is from SNSS and was embossed with white ep on black and one end was punched with a SU! mosaic punch to make it a little decorative. I added some turquoise/white twine, along with some tiny turquoise, green and pink gemstones placed randomly on the panel. (Click picture to enlarge for detail)

I'm entering this into the Little Red Wagon #304 challenge to use the colors of turquoise, green, and pink.

I'm also sharing it over at the Tuesday Throwdown #259 "Just Because" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all a colorful day too!

Oh so pretty and such great colors. That little bit of blue and white twine looks very nice with the colors on your paper. The gems are just precious. Have a nice evening.
