I love the look of the faux batik embossed resist technique Tim Holtz demonstrates in his November Tag of 1202. See his blog for the details with lots of photos.
I decided to try this technique on an ATC.Stamped a wheat image on manila card stock with embossing ink, covered with clear embossing powder (ep) and heat set.
Then lightly spray the card with water then apply various colors of Distress Stains, blotting the ink with a cloth (I used a paper towel) between colors.
ink and roll technique to add stamped images to the background. I used three different background stamps with walnut stain Distress Ink.
