faux batik

Faux batik using clear embossing is a technique I'd seen demonstrated, and knew how to do  in theory but hadn't had a good go at so it was a real treat to spend the day with the "Vicky Stampers" where Cath was teaching on Saturday.  [Sorry Chris, we will make it together one day I'm sure!]

I happily played with this technique on card, tags, and in my journal.  

It was a real treat to spend the day exploring a new technique, using another person's stamps alongside my own, and meeting new people.

I now have a longer wishlist of stamps I'd like!!  I also got to play with some of my new purchases from Port Sunny; the butterfly above is from Indigo Blu and the cow parsley is a woodware stamp from The Stamp Man.  Huge thanks to Cath for letting me be her guest, and all the "Vicky Stampers" for making me feel so welcome [and a special 'hello' to Ann :) ]


  1. There are those who learn by reading, others by seeing, and still other by doing...and I am definitely in that "doing" category!! For this reason, I love going to classes where one can play with all kinds of products--but, like you, I end up wanting to buy them all! You have mastered this technique immediately, as all these pieces are gorgeous!

  2. fabulous results, Sarah!! I love that yellow page... stunning.

  3. o, WOW, these makes are so awesome!

  4. Glad you enjoyed it, Sarah - you didn't need much help to make some fab pieces, though - lovely to spend time with you. Cath x

  5. Fabulous! It certainly looks as though you had fun!! Chrisxx


Thanks for leaving a comment; it makes my day!!
