A Technique for a Tuesday

IMG_0035I saw this technique online and had to try it right away with some wonderful butterflies!  The demonstrator who posted the sample didn’t have a name for the technique, so I named it Crumb Cake Watercoloring. Here is how you do it:

  1. Emboss an outlined image in white embossing powder on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  2. Use an Aqua Painter and White Craft (about 50/50 mix) to whitewash the inside of the image.
  3. Dry the whitewashed ink with a heat tool.
  4. When dry, watercolor over this layer either using Stampin’ Write markers & Blender Pen or Classic Ink & Blender Pen.
  5. There will be some ink residue left on the embossed image.  Wipe away with a tissue.
