Mojo-Batik for a "New Day"

Today's card is a combination of Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday and the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS. Today's technique is colorwash batik. It is one of my favorite ways to play with re-inkers. It can be a tad messy--which I don't mind (please note the title of my blog). A benefit of doing this technique is that I could use the extra colorwash mist to dye my *not quite the right color* flower.

TLC188-Mojo55-New Day

If you check out the sketch for Mojo Monday #55, you will notice that a few items are a bit--off. My excuses for this is that my computer is upstairs and my stamping studio is in the basement and my printer cable is still MIA. So show mercy ;)

Materials:

Stamps: Chrysanthemum; Miracles Text; How do I love Thee; (all from Rubbernecker)

Paper: Pumpkin pie and old olive (SU!); Pea Green (Bazzill); DP (MME); Opalescent Ivory;

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, and Vintage Photo;

Accessories: flocked brad(Paper Studio); mini brads; foam tape, mini misters, clear EP;

Thanks for stopping by!!
