Greenhouse Garden Batik Technique
I wanted to use this set again, this time going for a much softer look. The Batik technique is quite easy if you want to give it a try.
On Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flower and stem images in Versamark and then heat embossed in clear embossing powder. Spritz the card front with water and then randomly sponge on color. I used Soft Subtles (Pink, Apricot, Bashful Blue, celery, lavender). Sandwich this cardstock piece between two sheets of paper and then iron on a medium setting. Peel back paper, this will lift off the embossing and give you a nice soft, blended effect. Experiment! I've seen this done with bold, darker colors and it looks great also.
