The last couple of days I told you about a technique I found at http://stamptv.ning.com/video/embossing-over-watercolor called embossing over watercolor.
By scribbling on watercolor paper with three values of a color and of green where you want flowers and leaves then spritzing with water and using a heat gun to dry the piece, you set up for a floral background.
Versamark is used to stamp solid flower heads over the colored areas and solid leaves over the green areas then they are embossed with clear powder and a heat gun.
Sponging over the surface with dark ink lets the flowers and leaves shine through and then any extra ink is buffed off with a paper towel.
The second piece I did had better composition and more even results so I decided to use it as a whole background.
I tied twine in three strands and added a pre-stamped sentiment with a border popped up on foam tape.
Each flower got a pink rhinestone center and the whole piece was added to a green base card.
