Layers of Color

Memento Multi-Layer Faux Batik

by Roni Johnson

This multi-layer faux batik technique creates depth and dimension that you don’t see in the basic technique.  By taking advantage of the Memento Ink line of colors, you can emboss and sponge layers of ink to create an amazing finished project.

Directions:

1. Stamp your image(s) using VersaMark watermark ink onto a piece of white cardstock.

2. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder; heat to melt the powder.

3. Use a sponge dauber to apply one or more colors of Memento ink (New Sprout and Summer Sky Memento) over the embossed images. It is very important to let this layer of ink dry before moving to the next step.

4. Stamp additional image(s) using VersaMark ink over the first layer of embossed/inked images.

5. Sprinkle the second set of stamped images with clear embossing powder, shake off excess and heat to melt the powder.

6. Apply mid-range color(s) of ink over the entire cardstock.  Bamboo Leaves, Gray Flannel, and Bahama Blue Memento Inks were used for this layer. Again, let this layer of ink dry before moving to the next step.

10. Once the final layer of ink has been applied, place a sheet of copy weight paper over the card panel; iron to remove all three layers of embossed images.
