Club Scrap January Artist Challenge: Faux Batik

Welcome to the Club Scrap January
Artist Team Challenge and
this month we share with you cards 
with a Faux Batik technique
I hope you have arrived here from
Pam's Blog
and see what wonderful projects she has
come up with.

There are various way of doing this technique
and I used one of the tutorials from
Splitcoaststampers here.

And here are my cards:

For this hop I made 4 cards in the same batik technique
with various stamps. 

This card is made with mostly this months papers
and stamps from the Color Me Happy kit,
but the pot and the sentiment are from
April 2009 Pure and Simple. I love using
distress inks for this way I could also sprinkle
some waterdrops and give the background
an even more batik look.

Here all papers and stamps from the January
Color Me Happy kit. The enamal dots are from
my stash.

The next two cards are made with the base
from the Office kit in combination with
the Color Me Happy kit. 
To be honest this was one of the first trials
of this technique and I almost discarded it. 
But then When I added the sentiment it looked
ready to use. The leather ribbon and beads
are from my Club Scrap stash. 
This card is made with one of my favorite
(vintage wooden) stamp, the tulips.

This was my contribution, but there is
more inspiration. Hop over to
Jennifer's Blog
and see her awesome artwork.

If you hapen to loose your way,
you can always go back to the
Club Scrap Blog
and see all the designer's link addresses.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
