Sincere Thanks - Batik inspired background

   My card that I created was inspired by batik fabric. It is used a lot in quilting and has gorgeous water color like look to it. Just go on Pintrest and type in batik to find all kinds of lovely fabrics and designs. I love the look so I wanted to try and create something like it with a card back ground. First I cut a piece of water color paper and blended distress inks in three colors. I used tattered rose, spiced marmalade, and fired brick. After that I embossed the flowers with Hero Arts ultra fine clear embossing powder.

After that I took a paint brush and dipped it into some water and applied the water to the petals of the flowers. I let the water set for a few minutes and then blotted it away with a clean paper towel. When that was complete I took two different size dots and embossed them with silver Hero Arts embossing powder. I also embossed my sentiment on to a strip of vellum and wrapped it around the front of the card and fastened the ends of the vellum on the inside of the card. I will be entering this card in the Word Art Wednesday blog challenge. For their anything goes challenge #152. I hope you enjoyed my card and would be so kind as to leave me some feedback please.
