A second card for Jeanne's Liquid Metals MIX challenge. This is Burnt Batik, but as per Julia Andrus' Paper Transformed, after the initial part I brushed gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water over the embossed tapestry background before ironing all the embossing out. The wreath elements were already on my desk - it was a birthday gift and I've been practising the two-step stamping to line up with the dies. The colours were a good match to my background, so I used them, matted the panel on black and added a black die-cut sentiment.
This was a nice discovery because I am not a big fan of white halos around die-cuts, and generally prefer fussy-cutting or masking. The first time I played with this set, I use a mostly white embossed background. Because there's still a good amount of white in the background batik panel, I didn't find it to be a problem for me here, which I will remember because those evergreen sprays are not something even I am going to attempt fussy-cutting.
