Today I was trying out a new technique that the demo's learned at a recent convention they attended. Not sure if it was a Regional or Leadership convention but at any rate it was one of them. The effects that you get from this technique are just beautiful.
Here are the directions:
Stamp the rose image (from Fifth Avenue Floral Set) on Shimmery White cardstock using White Craft Ink , heat emboss with Clear Embossing Powder.
Spritz entire embossed image with water in a spray bottle - spray until there are puddles of water, not just wet paper.
Use an Aquapainter to dip into drops of classic reinker and just "touch" the tip of the Aquapainter/ink to each section of the rose - ink flows inside each section (because of the embossing) but will also blend nicely when you touch more than one color to a section.
Use 2 or 3 coordinating reinker colors in any combo you wish (classic ink)
I used: Regal Rose, Cameo Coral. Kiwi Kiss and Summer Sun on the above samples
clean Aquapainter tip in between applying each color.
Let it dry, cut out image and mount to card or project. Just as a note, I cut my leaves from one of the nestabilities that I have.
