So for today's card, I am using the "Acrylic Batik Technique" and I'll even show you how if you'd like to learn. This is the card I made using this technique:
Notice the multiple colors I used in completing my background? I embossed the Hardwood Stamp image for the background on my card above so that multiple colors peek through.
Using a piece of Whisper White Cardstock measuring 3 3/4" x 5", emboss the Hardwood stamp image using VersaMark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder. The photo below shows you the embossed cardstock piece:
You will need 3 colors of acrylic paint. I first picked the ink colors I wanted to use when stamping and matched the paint colors as close as I could get. Open the cover and splatter all 3 colors here and there on your cardstock piece as shown below:
Using an old credit card, spread the color until the cardstock is covered. The photo below shows the completed background:
Once my paint was dry, I used a moist tissue to wipe off the paint from the embossing. Here is a close-up of the colors:
I decorated my card front by using two pieces of Whisper White Cardstock. The first layer measuring 2 1/4" x 5" and the 2nd layer measuring 2" x 5". I used Stampin' Dimensionals between both layers. I stamped the images from Simple Stems. Some of the flowers were hand-cut and glued in place using Stampin' Dimensionals.
