Making faux batik

Today is the fifth Saturday of the month - and that means over at Twofers we have a tutorial. This month it is my turn to produce the tutorial and I decided to resurrect the old technique of using stamping and embossing to create faux batik. This was very popular in the days when we all had a huge stash of Mulberry paper!

Do please pop over there and have a look at how I created the batik style background paper I have used on this card - and while you're there, how about making a note to check out our next challenge which will go live this time next week? We'd love it if you joined in!
