You Make My Heart Smile

I am loving trying different techniques using dye inks to create watercolor backgrounds.  This card was made by stamping this very lovely sentiment from Magenta and one other Magenta stamp (Small Burst Dandelion) onto 140# card stock with Versamark ink.  The images were then embossed with JudiKins Opaque White embossing powder.  Various colors of Distress Ink were applied over the stamped areas, and the embossing resisted the ink.  I sprayed the piece liberally with water mixed with Perfect Pearls Pearl, until the ink started puddling and moving.

I let the water dry, and then added some gems to the top and bottom of the sentiment, and some Stickles to the center of each Dandelion Burst.  This card has a lovely shine in real life.
