MIM #109 Watercolor Stamping Plus Embossing

The very talented Betsy Veldman shows us how to use re-inkers to first stamp our cards, then emboss, giving a soft watercolor look.
The new Birds and Blooms stamp set seemed perfect for creating a watercolor.
I repositioned and stamped 3 times, then added the 2 single leaves for a fuller wreath.
Re-inkers: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold and Spring Rain.
Double embossed with Lilac Pastel by Stampendous, and Zing Powder.
Diecut branch was stamped with re-inkers and embossed with Adirondack Lettuce.
Birds diecut, stamped with re-inker mix and stamped with Winter Wisteria, as was the sentiment.
Lilac border print from Secret Garden, all mounted on Rustic White cardstock.
Had to get this done before the baking begins!
Happy Easter to all!
