Make It Monday #111: Watercoloring Embossed Images

Combine the softness and ease with heat embossing to create beautiful images.

I have said this before water coloring is not my strength. I do not own any Year of Flower stamps and really the only line image I own is Delightful Dahlia. I used it on water color paper and had a bit of trouble seeing my image after I stamped it. It sort of faded into the paper so my stamps aren't as well spaced as I would like. My other issue is I don't have a lot of re-inkers. I have some of the old glommed up ones but I have been holding off buying new ones until the ink issues are cleared up and I don't have to replace them, AGAIN. So, with that said, here is my card!

I used Delightful Dahlia stamp and white embossing powder

The re-inkers were Pure Poppy and Raspberry Fizz;
The water color panel is adhered to Raspberry Fizz card stock

The top element is Victorian Lace Border Die that cut Pure Poppy card stock. The bottom element is Filigree Border Die that was used to cut New Leaf card stock. 

I used Boutique Borders: Birthday die and stamps in New Leaf and Raspberry Fizz. Leaf dies from Delightful Dahlia were used with New Leaf card stock and ink.

Thank you for looking at my blog!
