Book Study: Batik Resist Technique 1

We're doing a Book Study as a group on NGS, using Nancy Curry's book "Texture Effects for Rubber Stamping". This week we are looking at her project "Love is Blue". Nancy demonstrates the batik resist technique using mulberry paper and dark intense watercolor paints for a fabulous look. Check out her book for her gorgeous card and detailed instructions.
I tore out a piece of mulberry paper and stamped on three bold flowers with a watermark pad, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set.
Following Nancy's instructions, placed the stamped mulberry paper on top of waxy palette paper and sprayed the paper with water to thoroughly wet the paper.
Used two colors of Dr Ph Martins Iridescent colors (one at a time) to brush on color. Then let dry.
Placed the mulberry paper between two sheets of copy paper and ironed off the embossing powder.
Layered the mulberry paper over a slightly smaller piece of white paper with yellow dots. Used silver brads to attach the mulberry paper to the white layer, then adhered to a purple card. Die cut out letters j-o-y from silver metallic card stock. Added a pink/purple ribbon with yellow dots attached with a silver flower buckle.
