I saw this technique on Heather Telford's Blog and just had to try it.
Stampin' Up! style of course ;-)
Embossed the Bordering on Romance flowers in white on Daffodil Delight card stock. Heather used water color pencils on her card, I used water and SU Classic Ink instead. First I did a light wash of Pumpkin Pie all over the petal and then added a bit more for some shading. Be very careful, too much water will make the card stock pill! Did the same with the Gumball Green on the leaves. Added some Dazzling Details to the center of the flowers for some sparkle. I really like this technique, I think I might try a pink background next!
Thanks for stopping by :-)
