Summer Stamp Camp 2 Week 2 Day 2

Woo hoo, I'm back with my second post for today.  This card uses emboss resist again but in a different way than my card earlier.  I stamped my images (2 step stamping) with pigment ink, then stamped the solid images in versamark on top and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.  I then took a distress marker (tumbled glass) and went around the outside of my image and using a water brush, water colored the image to give it a soft glow.  I had to make my card 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 because I smudged the top of my water color paper, ugh!!!  I hate when I do that!!!  Also, it looks like I should have used a different brown ink pad, as that one looks a little washed out :(

Super fun class and I am REALLY enjoying it!!  Thanks for looking and have a wonderful Tuesday!!

Sorry for the bad photo, I tried to take a photo outside, but I didn't like the way it looked, so I am stuck with a bad photo in my dark crap room!!  It is also hard to see the shine of the embossing.  Oh well, c'est la vie!!
