Woodland Watercolor

Happy New Year!  Did you see all of the new stamps for January?  Did you catch yesterday's blog hop?  If you didn't then why not go back to yesterday's post and start the hop from the beginning.  There is beautiful talent on our Design Team and boy did they do their best stuff. 

While perusing Pinterest I came across this card which is the inspiration for today's tutorial.  The two stamps I used were SD621 Winds of Change and Age Spots which is on clearance for only $2.25, so when you're buying your stamps, why not throw this stamp into your cart too?

I hope my card inspires you to try your hand at this technique.  Try different embossing folders for different effects. Now onto the tutorial:

Supplies:  Woodland Textured embossing folder  (from SU), a variety of 3 to 4 inks, water spritzer, waterbase marker such as SU or Tombow, Age Spots stamp
Add ink to your stamp and stamp out your image in a variety of places on your embossing folder
Continue by adding a second color of ink
Continue to add ink until you are happy with the coverage
If you are using the Woodland Textured embossing folder then draw the brown lines that are on the birch trees
Lightly spritz your embossing folder with water
Place your cardstock into the embossing machine and run it through two to three times
Your piece is now ready to finish as desired. 

Thank you for popping in.
