Acrylic Batik

Herma's technique for the day was "Acrylic Batik"!  Just what I was going to do next week.  So I already had a couple of backgrounds prepared:

First of all I stamped Mike's Mosiac Frame on white and embossed with clear embossing ink.  Then I dabbed on some acrylic paint (Tim Holtz disress paint -- Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry)


 and then smeared it all over using this rubber tool.  You don't actually need one -- you can just use an old credit card or something but this was a new toy of mine so I wanted to use it.

 

Here is the result:





 I just made a simple card out of this to keep the background as the focal point.




 Here's another one using Mustard Seed and Salty Ocean:
