Embossing Bonanza Part Two – Water color edition

I’ve been very fascinated by water color techniques after watching several videos by Kristina Werner and others using Tim Holtz distress inks and inktense pencils.  This next slew of cards exhibits the depth of my newfound obssession passion with watercolor and continuing love of emboss folders. I created the following cards using various Quik Kutz emboss folders, a craft sheet, and Tim Holtz distress ink pads.

For the center strip, I tried out a braying technique that is supposed to mimic the look of letterpress. It was my first go around and although I definitely need to work on my technique, I think it’s a cool look.

Something about this just screams “under the sea” to me – in the best way possible.
