Technique #5 - Burned Batik

This month's technique involved clear embossing on whisper white cardstock and then sponging various colors over the image to create a simulated batik technique.  When it's all finished you get a custom made piece of cardstock.  Tip: Start with the lightest color first when sponging.

Black Magic Technique Swap

Here is my card swap for the black magic technique that I previewed earlier. The grasses in the background were stamped using versamark.  I also used white stazon instead of the white stampin' up! craft ink.

Tim Holtz - 12 Tags of 2012 (May)

Here is my interpretation of Tim's tag for May.  Once again all the products used are from Stampin' Up!. The only exception is the sewing pattern pdf which I purchased from Etsy and printed on tissue paper.  I used real red ink for the Eiffel Tower (Artistic Etchings stamp set) and distressed everything with chocolate chip ink.  As for the flower, I used the Blossoms Petal Builder punch, glued everything together and covered it with crystal effects.  The stem was made using Pear Pizzazz seam binding ribbon.

Black Magic Beginnings

I started working on my black magic card swaps for this month.  Now I just need to figure out what to do with the fan.
