A Splash of Color!

This weeks "Can You Case It?" Challenge was so inspirational!

I wanted my card to have a colorful splash reveal an image that would otherwise be invisible!!


 


Now that I have tried it I am excited to do this with so many of my stamps and sentiments! 


First I took a square of watercolor paper.  After prepping it with an anti-static "Embossing Buddy" I used Versa Mark ink to print the image and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I then wet, with a clean brush, the places I wanted the ink to splash and applied color with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Water Color Markers. I love the results, I especially like just making a portion of the image appear!


To finish, I embossed some little sparkly flowers on the edge of a strip of vellum and then added, with black embossing powder, the sentiment so that I could plan where it would appear in relation to the rest of the card.  I sprinkled a few little gems for a 3rd element and some added dimension and the card is complete!


Both the image and the sentiment are from Unity Stamp Co
Clear Embossing Powder from ZING! (leaves a detailed and glossy, mostly solid image)
