Another Batik Card

Hi everyone.  Sharing one more card for the August CAS Mix Up Challenge - Emboss Resist.  This card uses the same technique of Faux Batik that I used on my DT cards for the launch of this challenge on Aug. 1st.  And I used the same background image stamp (Plant Background - The Stampin' Place - retired) that I used on my DT cards for the reminder post on Aug. 15.  The difference was sponging distress inks (Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean) over the white embossed image.

Once I finished sponging, I wiped down my card panel with a paper towel to remove any ink that would have stuck to the embossed image.  This made the colours even brighter.  I added a popped up frame over the panel and stamped Happy Birthday (Endless Birthday Wishes - SU! - retired) in more of the Salty Ocean distress ink.

Close-up ...

The challenge is still open for a couple of days.  Come play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Another stunning faux batik card, Loll!
Sponging inks over the embossed image made the background colors more saturated, and the white image pops so beautifully!

I really have to try this technique. The folds add such interest to an already gorgeous background. Love your rich color combo, and the background stamp was made for this technique.
