The background was made by sprinkling Brusho Colour Crystals directly onto the Watercolor Wash stamp, spritzing it with water then stamping it onto the Watercolor Paper. Once it dried (you could use a heat tool to speed the process), stamp the leaves image onto the Watercolor Paper using VersaMark ink. Emboss using black embossing powder (yeah, it's coming back in the new catalog!), and heat set. Then the fun begins with coloring in the leaves using Brusho Colour Crystals sprinkled onto a clear block, picked up using an Aqua Painter. The color blending that happens is wonderful, and the color simply glides on!
Hope you try it for yourself soon.
