Beautiful Batik

Batik Flowers

Notes: I purchased this card at Caribelle Batik in St. Lucia.  Batik is a process for dyeing cloth, using wax to create designs and patterns.  The flower design on this card was created using wax, then the cloth was dyed.  The cloth is then boiled to remove the wax, leaving the pattern behind.  The store had many items made from batik-dyed cloth, and I was really tempted to buy a dress, but we had to leave before I could really decide.  So I settled for my postcards and this card, which is a blank folded card.
