CHA Sneak Peeks Day 3 + a tutorial!

Be sure to leave a comment on our designers' posts throughout the week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate daily from Impression Obsession!


More coffee images today! By the way - there will be DIES to go with this little collection soon! So excited.

I'm sharing a tutorial over on Splitcoast today using the Layered Batik Resist technique - it's a fun way to build colorful scenes, using layers of heat embossed images and any transparent coloring medium. Once you have all your images stacked up with color in between, you heat the panel with an iron in between sheets of newsprint to remove the embossing powder. It's been a favorite technique of mine for years, and the results are so striking. Hope you'll check that tutorial out! These solid images work so well.


I used Inktense Blocks to add color to the panel here - the Indigo is such a pretty deep blue.  I love this sentiment... ain't it the truth? :)

Stamps I used: Teapot, Teacup, Tea Tools, Pour Sip Sigh, Steam Flourish
