These are a couple of cards made using the Distress Watercolor Dry Embossing technique. It uses watercolour paper, an embossing folder, heat embossing in clear... and last but not least Distress Ink refills painted on for colour.
Watercolor paper, 140lb cold press used here
Embossing folder, Stampin' Up! Manhattan Flower
Die Cutting Machine, Cuttlebug
Versamark Inkor another embossing ink
Clear fine (or detail) embossing powder
Distress Ink refills & palette or other coloring medium (colours used here: scattered straw, mustard seed, wild honey, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge, and a touch of barn door).
Spray bottle / container with water
White Pigment ink
White Sakura Souffle gel pen
Microglaze by Judikins
SRM Sticker sentiment "We've Got Your Sticker - Birthday" and K & Company Flora and Fauna Vellum butterfly stickers
The tutorial showing how to do the technique will go live here on SCS, this Wednesday.
Thanks for having a peek!

This technique has me sold! I love these gorgeous flowers and have just ordered them so I can watercolor large flowers. Gosh, these just POP they are so beautiful. Wonderful job and the tutorial was great....makes me not feel afraid to see some bleeding going on. I'm such a perfectionist so this will stretch and take me out of my comfort zone which is a thrill to do. Thanks again Beate.

I printed up the tutorial and went to Michael's today to get the things I needed to make this project. All the folks that worked at Michael's didn't know and couldn't help me find the Microglaze. What is Microglaze and where do you get it? Darn I just realized I forgot the Sakura Souffle pen....I have plenty of steps to concur before that is needed. Great project and again thanks for sharing. I will post my results (good or bad) when I am done. My watercolor skills leave a lot to be desired.
