EMERGING COLOR DAY 2

This morning I got up and decided that my Emergent background color had plenty of time to dry so it was time to finish the technique and see if it came out better and without little specks. It did come out much better but there still are some speckling. I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong or that this is just how it always turns out. I did this on glossy card stock once again. I like it on the glossy card stock better then the regular card stock because the shine of the glossy finish goes well with the shine of the clear embossing powder.

So it is easier to see the before and after embossing and brayering I am reposting the back ground that I stamped yesterday afternoon and also the card I made with it after finishing the technique. The background stamp colors I used were Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Wild Wasabi, and Bashful Blue. The background stamps I used were from Carte Postal and Wanted.

I brayered Elegant Eggplant over the top after embossing. Then I stamped with versa mark using stamps from Big Pieces and the solid small circle from Pick a Petal. My card base is Wild Wasabi card stock stamped with the Canvas background and Wild Wasabi ink. I used the Birthday stamp from Hugs and Wishes for the sentiment stamped in Elegant Eggplant in River Rock. I punched it out using the Marvy scalloped oval punch and sponged around the edge with River Rock ink. Two antique pewter brads finish off the scalloped oval and it is mounted on card front with dimensionals to pop it up.
