Floating Re-inker Technique

I learnt how to do this technique this past week at my Upline's house. I love this technique and had just received a package of shimmery white cardstock in my order and knew that I had to play with it. I used the rose from 5th avenue floral, stamped it in craft white ink and then used clear embossing powder on it. Heat it with your heat tool until all the embossing powder has melted. You'll need a spray bottle with water in it, spray it generously so that the water is actually dripping off. The more water the better as this helps to float the color. Once your done spraying it your ready to use your aqua brush and reinkers, for mine I used pretty in pink, pink pirouette and so saffron. I am still very limited in my reinkers so used what I had. As you can see this color combination worked well. After I was done to speed up the drying process, I dabbed at the excess water with a corner of a paper towel and then used my heat tool to finish drying it. Then cut out the image by hand.

Here's my finished card. I'd love to hear your comments.
