Re-inker Splash Rose Mojo172

Good evening all! I designed this card for this weeks MOJO MONDAY sketch challenge #172. To play along just click on the Mojo Monday blinkie on the right side bar! I used a few different techniques on my card. I used the re-inker splash technique to color my rose. The rose is done in Baja Breeze on shimmer white. I also used a fun new technique called inlaid embossing. That is the white piece with baja breeze colored hearts. Check below my card for descriptions on how to do both types of techniques!

Here is the Mojo Monday Sketch #172

Here is my card:

Here is how you do the Re-Inker Splash:
Stamp your rose in versamark on shimmer white paper. Then emboss with white embossing powder. Lightly spray the flower with water until it beads. Then using a few drops of re-inker and your aquapainter gently touch the wet areas of the flower and watch the ink spread out. Keep coloring until you get the look you want and then set it aside to dry. Once dry cut it out and apply to your card.

Here is how you do inlaid embossing:
Take your base piece of cardstock and cut to size. Using punches, punch desired shapes in a different color from the base and glue the punchies to the base in a random pattern. Then run through the big shot in an embossing folder. I used the square lattice one on my card. Trim off any extra punchies hanging over the side.
