Watercoloring & Heat Embossing
For this card, I stamped the flower and leaf images on glossy white with VersaMark and then embossed them with black embossing powder. I then spritzed the images with water, used an Aqua Painter and to pick up ink from a drop of ink refill (I created a palette in a plastic lid) and touched it to the image.. the ink spreads in the water creating a soft watercolored look. For my card I chose to use one color on each image but you can certainly mix colors.
I recommend practicing this technique several times before committing to project, I scrapped several pieces before I created one that I liked.
