Clear Embossing and Sponging

Another technique I saw this week was clear embossing on white cardstock, spritzing the card with water and sponging on ink so I thought I would give it a go.

Using an old set of 2 step stamps, I clear embossed the flowers with the first step of the flowers and stems onto blending card, spritzed the image and proceeded to sponge on 3 pastel shades of ink.  The first application was a little too faint, so I went over the coral and the green again, and this time it got into the crevices on the embossed image making it stand out far more.  It did get into some of the dimples on the clear embossing, but it still looks effective.    

Once again, a quite sort of image deserved a quiet sort of sentiment.
