Re-inker Spread Technique














This was a new technique I just saw demonstrated at the Seattle Regionals. You emboss an outline image (I used Versamark and white embossing powder.) You spritz this image with water and then immediately pick up some of the re-inker color with your Aquapainter and touch it into the water. The ink will spread out and should stay in the embossed area.
I used Fifth Avenue Floral for this flower with Apricot Appeal, Summer Sun, and Old Olive re-inkers. Cut out the images when dry. The Sizzlits Little Leaves die in Old Olive, flower and Oval All sentiment used for "fabulous friend" in bottom corner. Texture folder Damask (SU) used for Apricot cardstock, Eyelet folder used on the Whisper White panel. Edged with eyelet border punch. Card base is Tangerine Tango.
Hope you like it and hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Thanks for the instructions Joanne.

Quick question; did you use whisper white or watercolor paper for the technique part--spritzing of water. Thanks and great card!!!

Hi Jackie. I work with Crystal French who invented this new Technique. Connie Ingram is the one that demonstrated it at Regionals. This technique works best when you use the shimmery white card stock. It is more dense that whisper white. Watercolor paper doesn't work well at all because to make the technique work you need the water to 'pool' on top between the embossed lines. Hope this helps.
