I just want to emphasize again that I am not the author of this technique!
- Whisper White cardstock 3 by 4" (or whatever size you want)
- Inks: Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze, Hello Honey, Early Espresso, Versa Mark
- Finger daubers for each of the above colours except the Versa Mark
- Stamp: Sheltering Tree (the leaves only)
- Embossing buddy
- Clear embossing powder
- Heat tool
Starting with the darkest colour (in this case Cherry Cobbler), ink up the dauber, and in circular motions apply Cherry Cobbler randomly over the surface of the Whisper White paper.
Apply the Cajun Craze next in the same manner. It's okay to touch the Cherry Cobbler ink.
Fill in the empty spaces with Hello Honey
Apply embossing buddy to the entire surface of the stamped area.
Ink up the stamp with Versa Mark ink and stamp directly on the coloured background piece stamping at least 4 times to cover the entire area.
Add clear embossing powder.
Heat using a heat tool
Using a finger dauber and Early Espresso in cover the entire surface of the now embossed background.
Take a paper towel and wipe the surface to remove the Early Espresso ink from the embossed areas.
Here is what it looks like now.
