Technique Thursday - Mulberry Paper Batik

This is a way cool technique! Try and see what you think!
  1. Cut white or very pale mulberry paper 5 x 3 3/4. Cut a piece of white card stock the same size.
  2. Stamp on the mulberry paper with Versamark.
  3. Emboss with clear embossing powder.
  4. Using sponge daubers sponge ink over the mulberry paper. Continue until you have the color that you want. I used Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue, and Pretty in Pink ink pads.
  5. Once done, use an iron and clean white typing paper. Fold the paper and place the mulberry paper in the middle. Iron to REMOVE the embossing.
  6. Mount the mulberry paper on the white piece you cut earlier.
  7. Mount on your card and decorate! As you can see, I used the Direct To Paper (DTP) technique in Bashful Blue on the Pretty in Pink cardstock.
  8. I used Prima flowers that matched the colors used and a SU! colored brad to further accent!
  9. I used SU! two tag punches to make the tag, stamped "bliss" in Bashful Blue and added some lilac ribbon as a finishing touch.
Now it's your turn! Give it a get an absolutely different look every time and this will definitely "WOW" your friends and family to get such a wonderful looking card!
