Emerging Color Technique





Three easy steps to a great technique that looks layered.
1. Stamps images using a solid image stamp (not an outline type).
2. Emboss a solid shape in Versamark and clear powder (I used an oval).
3. Brayer over entire panel in a lighter, coordinating color. Wipe off ink from embossed surface.
Complete your card!
I used Whisper White as my base, Vintage Vogue images in Ruby Red, Tangerine, and Dusty Durango. Well Scripted sentiment in black. Non SU oval image (from the dollar bin at my local Stamp store). Brayered Groovy Guava over entire image. Main card base is Dusty Durango.
