CPS110 Colorwash Batik

Happy Sunday! I had a few ideas in mind when I saw today's CPS Sketch - but settled with this creation. If I have time later this week, I'll post another card idea using this sketch - sometimes if I don't get the idea out of my head and on to paper it'll drive me nuts until I do.

To create this card, I used Colorwash Batik Technique. Using Direct to Stencil, I applied my White Craft ink to the Kind Thoughts Flourish Stencil, then clear embossed. I made my own Color Wash Spray, using a small mister bottle filled with water, about 10 drops of Regal Rose reinker, and a drop of alcohol. Not as intense are store bought sprays, but does the job for a SUO card. Once the card stock was dry, I rolled my Friendly Words Wheel in Chocolate, then placed clear copy paper over my flourish and ironed off the embossing powder with my Craft Iron. The bird from Friends 24-7 is stamped in Chocolate twice (cut one out to pop over image)- the damask image is stamped in Regal Rose. The Vanilla card stock is cut with the Oval Nestabilities, layered on a Scallop Chocolate Oval. Color was added to the bird and branch with an Aquapainter and ink pads.
