You've Got This: Floating Re-inker

Hello crafters! Sorry I've been M.I.A. for a while, I have been helping my Dad get his house ready to sell and it's been a lot of work, but we're almost there!! 

Now, onto the crafting.

I have a fun, and addictive technique to share with you today. I've included a photo tutorial to show the process. I used the stamp set {You've Got This} with the flower as the "focal" point of this card and used for the technique. 

The How-to's: 
Using Watercolour paper, you stamp your image (an outlined one) with VERSAMARK ink, add you embossing powder (I used white) and heat set until the powder is completely melted. 

Next, add water to your image, but only ONE section at a time. This will prevent your flower sections from bleeding into one another.  

Next, add your ink to the water you just added - while it's still wet and the colour will spread into the section with the water... like magic!

Continue to add your ink until you are finished, skipping petals. 

You can see how the ink is spreading differently in each petal, adds a nice effect and no two cards will be exactly alike!

First part is done!

Now that the flower portion is finished, you can move onto the leaves and stem.

When all your colour is added and dry, you can mount it and embellish your card as desired. 

I kept the embellishments quite simple, as the flower is so pretty it doesn't need anything to distract from it. I hope you like this project and will try it out for yourself. 

Thanks for stopping by, happy stamping!
