Batik Technique

I haven't been very well this week so I'm doing a quick post today. I'm quite sad because I can only have David home for a day, as I can't care for him as I would like to because of this flu bug.
.


Just sharing a card with the Batik technique and the Leafy Vines stamp from Hero Arts.I used distress inks to paint the background. When dry I ironed off the clear embossing powder.

Hope you are all well!
Jacqueline

  1. Jacqueline, thank you so much for sharing all of the beautiful things you make. You have been instrumental in my progress as a card-maker, your work is so uplifting and inspirational to me. I actually taught my first card class last weekend and am almost ready to teach my next one (in southern Oregon, USA) I feel like I needed to thank you for helping me get to where I am with this... I appreciate your creativity and willingness to share it. I hope you are feeling better now. By the way, this card, as usual is gorgeous!!

  3. gorgeous gorgeous card Jacqueline! I would like to know more about your technique for this card .. it's so beautiful. I did some batik on material many many years ago using wax and cold water dyes. It was lots of fun and I loved the result. You have been on my mind and my thoughts and prayers have been with you and David. I'm hoping that you'll get lots of rest so that you recover quickly. sending you a hug, Susanne

  4. What a gorgeous batik print with the leafy vines, Jacqueline! Saw your note on Flickr - you are right, this post doesn't show up on my feed as a new one. But I reached it from a previous post by seeing there was a "newer" button. Hope it resolves for you!!

  5. Very pretty, Jacqueline! I did not see your post in the Reader. It is good you let me know. I've heard the news that the Google reader will no longer be available after summer. So I will be using a different reader.

    Please get well!

  17. A serene and peaceful card. I hope you feel better soon. I lost some of the threads of your posts I'm afraid as I saw a while back your request for prayers for David but did not understand the nature of the situation. No matter, I keep you and you're family in my heart and prayers. I hope you have a better week. Hugs, Yvonne

    Sorry you can't have David home ... I know you must feel sad but you need to get well and there will be other times ... you can celebrate the meaning of Easter again with David when you are well ...
