This is a continuation of a process I began on my previous card. I had embossed dp with the Elegant Lines ef and added Melon Mambo ink using the direct to paper technique onto the raised areas. I then wet this and then laid that onto this piece of watercolor paper and "stamped off" the image onto this piece. I then took a wet brush and picked up Pool Party ink from the ink pad lid to add some wash around the pink. I laid this piece over a piece of burlap, laid a rubber embossing mat over this, then put it between two cutting plates and ran it through the Big Shot to add texture. It feels like textured paper though it is hard to see in the photo. I spatter some Melon Mambo and Pool Party then stamped my sentiment in Midnight Muse. I tried to remove a bit of color by spattering with plain water then sopping this up with a tissue but that is also hard to detect!
