Something a bit different for you today it’s a technique called burned batik and makes the most beautiful backgrounds.

First onto a piece of Whisper White card I have stamped the circles in Versamark and clear embossed them.  Normally when you are embossing you stop when the image is glossy and raised, with this technique you continue to heat the embossing powder until it flattens out again.Don’t hold the heat gun too close or you will end up with burnt patches on your card.  You will know when it is heated enough because you will be able to see the images on the reverse of the card.

Then spritz the card with water it needs to form in puddles, use a sponge dauber and a variety of ink pads I have used Chocolate Chip, Rose Red and Taken with Teal.  Dab the sponge daubers over the wet card and the colour will bleed through, once you have an effect you are happy with leave to dry.

I’m back from my holiday in Malta now having had an amazing time, it will take me a day or 2 to catch up with my emails, thank you for being patient!

Happy Stampin’
