Now Playing: another sample from a challenge
Topic: Some Backlog
This card was done a while back. It is called faux batik.
Using glossy white cardstock, stamp with clear versamark and emboss with clear powder. Use alcohol inks and metallic pens to create a polished stone technique over the background. When it is completely dry, place the cardstock face down on absorbent kitchen paper towels and place a single layer over the top. Use a hot iron to press, moving it about to clean parts of the paper towel until all of the embossing is out of the cardstock.
Finally, trim off the messy edges of the card and mount on a card front.
For this sample, I used one of my hand-carved rubber stamps.
