Anyhow, I stamped the butterfly from Beautiful Day in VersaMark 2 times on Shimmery White Cardstock, then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I could have used Clear powder, but wanted to be sure that the outline would remain white even if some of the color were to bleed into the paper and get underneath the embossing.
Then, working one portion of a wing at a time, I laid down a good bit of plain water with an AquaPainter, doing my best to keep it within the butterfly outline. Before it could dry, I sprinkled Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho Crystals. I let the water do its thing, and moved on to another portion. I came back later and did a bit of blending or adding more color.
Then I spritzed the paper all over lightly with water, and surprise! there were stray color crystals all over that got activated!
Once dry, I stamped the sentiment from Thankful Thoughts in Tranquil Tide and mounted it on a card base the same color.
