Easy Watercolor Outline & Debossing

Easy Watercolor Outline & Debossing
Well, it may be difficult to see the actual debossing in the picture, but it looks pretty amazing IRL. I cut two pieces of cardboard with the Backyard Basics Framelits Die and glued them together. Then placed this on top of the watercolor cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot with an embossing pad to deboss the image. The flower stamp was inked up with three different Distress Inks and stamped inside the debossed area. The color from the stamped lines was then pulled toward the center of the image using an Aqua Painter. Thanks, Jennifer Rzasa, for the great tutorial on Day 5 of the Stretch Your Stamps 2 online card class!

Thanks for stopping by!
