Batik Bird


This is the first time I've tried the Batik technique. Clear embossed the brocade stamp from Friends 24-7 on mulberry paper, spritzed with blue and green Glimmer Mist and then ironed off the embossing. Square ice rhinestone brads, white organza ribbon, Button Bouquet, eyelet border punch, and markers used to color bird.

Since I already had the supplies out from my earlier card I decided to do another Batik with the mulberry paper. Branch Out tree was clear embossed, spritzed with blue and green Glimmer Mists and then ironed to remove the embossing.I colored and cut out my all time favorite little SU bunnies from Spring Gifts (retired)
