Embossed Reinker Spread

April 23rd, 2009 · 3 Comments

Embossed Reinker Spread

I heard about this cool technique (a real wow) that was demonstrated at the Seattle Regional Seminar last weekend, and thanks to Crystal French’s instructions on the demo side of SCS I was able to try it out for myself.

I stamped the large rose from the Fifth Avenue Floral set with VersaMark ink on Shimmery White card stock (this card stock works best with this technique) and embossed with white powder. I put three drops of reinker on a paint tray: Cameo Coral, Rose Red, and Kiwi Kiss. Then I spritzed the flower with lots of water until puddles formed, dipped an Aqua Painter in the Cameo Coral ink and touched several of the “puddles” with the brush. The ink flowed across the flower. I cleaned the Aqua Painter before moving on to the next color. When the flower was completely colored in this way, I left it to dry before cutting it out.

The rest of the card is pretty self-explanatory (but feel free to ask questions if you have any). I used the layout from Sketch Challenge #8 on the Stampin’ Addicts site for my card.

Thanks for stopping by!
