Jewelry Color Inspiration #36 & Mojo Monday #86

Hello Everyone!
Sorry for the lack of posting, last week they found a superficial blood clot in my right leg. I was laid up for a couple of days and on antibiotics, elevate leg, heating pad, daily aspirin. Doing much better, pain is gone but there is still a lump in my leg. On to stamping...
I love the color combo that Stacey has this week and I thought I would give Mojo Monday Sketch a try also. I used the "Watercolor Technique" that I learned from Patty Bennett you should check it out, it's an awesome video tutorial.
I used the heart stamp from the "Always" stamp set and used Versamark on Shimmery White cardstock and used white embossing powder. I then sprayed the paper with water until the water was standing and then I picked up the reinker colors with the aqua painter and applied to the heart. I love the tie dye effect. The butterflies are from the "Priceless" stamp set. I first inked the stamp with Versamark then into Tempting Turquoise and stamped onto Whisper White and applied Heat & Stick powder heated and applied Dazzling Diamonds. Did the same with the Lavender Lace butterfly. I like this technique to use the classic ink and versamark together. TIP: I have two Versamark pads, one for this technique (as sometimes ink gets on the Versamark pad) & another one just for Versamark use only.
Thanks for stopping by :-)
