Batik Daisy

I was checking out various technique tutorials on Splitcoast today and was wowed by a variation on emboss resist. I started playing around with it and came up with this card.

What fun this was! The color peeking through the daisies was done with sponges. I tried doing it with various solid image stamps (which was what they used for the tutorial), but it just didn't work well for me. I had a lot more success with just sponging splashes of color all over, then clear embossing the daisies on top. Then i brayered Chocolate Chip ink over the whole thing and wiped off the daisies. Cool, huh?
