Washed Batik

Hello.  Three nights of stamping in a  The new Playdate Cafe challenge was up so I thought I would take a stab at it.  These are some of my favorite bright and cheery colors.  Love it!
As the title says I was going for that fabric, washed batik look.  I started with Guidelines 2 cardstock and the Giga Guidelines stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the images with Stampin Up dye based ink.  Then Took a waterbrush and swept it back and forth across the images to get the washed out look to it.  The challenge a PTI's Make-it-Monday was to use your ink pads to watercolor so I think this fits too.  Thanks for stopping by!

See you soon,
Sentimentally Sue.
