Summer Batik Card


Made this little summery card today for 4 challenges. Firstly the Compendium of Curiosities challenge 11, secondly Stampin for the Weekend which is a theme of anything goes thirdly  Mojo Monday challenge 153 which is a totally fab sketch and just up my street and lastly Simon Says Stamp and Show which is a theme of anything Tim. The technique used for the batik is from Tim's book The Compendium of Curiosities and I used tumbled glass and stormy sky distress ink, blue ribbon from stash and some shell beads. Stamp is a Judikins cube called shell cube 1.

This card is just precious.... I am not a card maker because I think I would have such a hard time giving the cards away after putting so much effort into them, but whomever is going to be the receiver of this will be sooooo lucky. beautiful job :)

This is lovely, Clare! The Blended Batik looks awesome with the seashell images, and the card really does have a sweet, summer feel to it. Great colors and a beautiful design, with the shells echoed in the background paper and the pretty ribbon. I love it!
