My cards were created using 2 different methods... The first set of cards were made using the traditional method of layering stamped n embossed images with color. After I was finished adding images and color I ironed to remove all of the embossing.
The second technique I used was a bit more complicated. I was experimenting and came up with this idea. For this example I spritzed on a bit of Sky Blue Fireworks spray. I then stamped the dragonflies and embossed with clear EP. I then colored the wings with a darker Fireworks spray and colored the bodies with markers. After that ink had dried I used a VersaMark pen to color just the areas I had colored - the wings and body. Sprinkled on EP and embossed.
Next I added more color using Dandelion Fireworks! I know it looks green here but it was very much the gold you see in the highlights. I then embossed flowers, and colored them in with markers, then VersaMark pen and embossed each flower a 2nd time to seal in the marker coloring.
After all of that embossing I spritzed the final coat of color then ironed off all of the embossed areas leaving the results you see above! It's a time consuming process but it resulted in some really unique and lovely finished cards.
Hope you've enjoyed what I have to share with you...
