Spring is Here!

Here is a fun card using the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set. The technique is Watercolor Wash. Stamp the dragonfly image on Shimmery cardstock using Versamark ink and emboss with Clear embossing powder.  Once the embossing powder is cooled,  wet the Shimmery cardstock with water using a aqua painter and float your ink colors on the water.  Use your reinkers for this.  The technique will give the paper a watercolor look and the embossed images will resist the water.  Allow to dry.  Don't blot the Shimmery cardstock with a paper towel or the ink will absorb into the paper towel!  Once dry, you can cut it with the stitched framelits and adhere to your card!

Have fun!  Kathy
