This week's SCS Technique challenge was to use a color wash over your embossed image - "Batik-The Colorwash Way ". I used Ranger color washes (Lettuce and Stream) for this one. Due to my lack of time I used them straight from their bottle which gave me a very vibrant look. At first I was very unsure if I liked what I did but in the end it came together nicely in my background. The SCS instructions called for using clear embossing powder but I used white instead. Breaking the rule, breaking the rules! LOLOL!
Here is my version using a butterfly from Unity's Beautiful Butterfly and the images on my "Batik" piece are from Unity's Oh Happy Day. My background colors are by Stampin Up: Tempting Turquoise and Certainly Celery and the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the background.
