CCC #11 - Blended Batik and Friends

Where do these weeks go? Already Challenge #11 over at Studio L3 - click on the Compendium of Curiosities pix to go take a peek!! You will see some absolutely stunning art and be drawn to creating some art of your own - what could be better?

On a card kick - so here's another one for a sweet lady I know. I used shiny card stock to do the technique and a stamp I picked up years ago from the Dollar Store and finished it off with Peeled Paint Distressed Ink. I framed the flower using Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Circles Large (& the largest one). The stamps, both the flower bouquet and the verse, are from Sweet and Sassy Stamps and are digi. Wanna know a secret? I gave up this paper scrapping and playing a couple of years ago and went all digital - now I'm using both and having an absolute blast. I've also been playing with my new Promarkers - feel as though I'm still in Kindergarten but I'm getting better. (used Rose Pink, Sunflower, Petrol Blue, Pastel Blue, Coral, Spice, and Cool Grey 2) I didn't have the right color greens to match the Peeled Paint so I had to improvise but it turned out just fine.

Anyway, busy week next week with my oldest, and her husband and two cats, moving back in for a couple of weeks before her apartment is ready but will try to stop by and see what everyone is up to. Have a great week!


  1. You have created a beautiful card here. Your background is super!

  2. The card came out great! The bling on the flowers are a perfect addition as is the scallop behind the flower!

  3. Charlene, this is fabulous! I've never tried blended batik on glossy paper, and now I'm going to because this looks great! You really got a nice, clear stamp image. It's a really sweet card, and I know the recipient will love it!

    Sounds like you have a VERY busy week ahead! Have fun with the full house, and remember to carve out a little time for you, too!

  4. What a lovely card! All of the flowers are just beautiful, and I love the Scripture you included!!
