Embrace Life (Reinker Spread)

The technique from this card was originally created by Crystal French. This technique is called “reinker spread”. The idea was also cased from Diva who used the Pacific Point In-Color from Spring-Summer 2009.

Stamp Set: Embrace Life and Oval All
Cardstock: Shimmery, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink: Versamark Pad, Whisper White Embossing Powder
Accessories: Heat Tool, Aqua Painter, Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal Reinkers, water spritzer, Whisper White grosgrain ribbon, Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Snail Adhesive, Dimensionals

You will need to emboss the Shimmery cardstock with the Versamark ink pad with the flower image. Then sprinkle the Whisper White Embossing Powder over it. Shake off the excess. Heat set with Heat Tool.

Next, you will need to spritz the Shimmery cardstock with water where there are actually puddles of water. Use the Aqua Painter to pick up the Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal reinkers and touch it to the puddle.
It will take about 10 minutes to dry after you reach your desired look.
