I did one more card for the Mod Squad challenge blog. I used a pretty hydrangea flower from Raisin boat stamps. I used versa mark ink to stamp it on water color paper and then embossed it with gold. I die cut a butterfly with a spellbinders die and then covered it with versa mark ink and embossed it with gold. I then used water color pencils to color the flower and used a aqua brush to blend the colors. This is really easy as the water stays inside the embossed lines. I used an oval spellbinders die and a pretty mat die they have to put out the colors of the flower. I added the butterfly to bring out the gold embossing on the flower. A very pretty card that was really easy to do.
The person I cased is Katerina she has done this technique and I always wanted to try it.
I hope you pull out your embossing powders and water color pencils and give this technique a try.
