While I was playing around with new techniques recent, I finally tried the Embossing Folder Stamping technique that I have seen done expertly for a long time by my good friend, Karen (Snippets). She is the master at this technique. Not only was I trying something new, but I used coloured card stock ... something I rarely use for card fronts. :) LOVE the results. For those that have not tried this, you ink up the raised design side on the inside of an embossing folder. Spritz with a little water, place your card stock inside and close it. Press down with your hands a little, then remove card stock and let it dry. Easy, peasy and oh-so beautiful!! Can't wait to try it again with different coloured inks on white card stock.
The background looks like watercolouring to me. I love the randomness and flow of it. :)
This is not CAS so I won't be adding it to the HLS June CAS Challenge (Sprays / Mists), but wanted to share with you this water misting technique. :) I also included a daisy (shaped a little differently than yesterday's card). :)
I'm heading to the Snippets Playground with this card. Used lots of snippets for the flower. :)
