Alternate Coloring...

I have an alternate water coloring for you today for the

I thought I'd try something a little different this time.
I embossing each of the images first and then colored them.
I've had my black & white embossing powder FOREVER.
It didn't emboss as great as I thought it should,
so I'm going to order some new ones.
I'll get a couple extra for the store in case you'd like to try it too.

Heather's Hobbie Haven - New Year Sakura Tilda Card Kit

This first one is embossed with detail black embossing powder.
It took forever to heat it enough to emboss.
One reason I'm getting new.

Heather's Hobbie Haven - New Year Sakura Tilda Card Kit

I saw this on someone else blog and had to try it.
I think it's look cool!

This one is embossed with detail white embossing powder.
It's not really white, white.
The other reason I'm getting new.
Plus this one took forever to emboss also.

Also for this one I brushed the eye's and eye brows off before embossing and drew them back on after I colored it.

Both are colored with Ranger Distress Re-Inkers.
The flowers I couldn't decide on a color so they have multiple layers of color before I decided on Spiced Marmalade as the top coat.

I loved that I didn't have to worry about going outside of the lines with the embossing.
Made it fairly quick and easy.
Lexie wanted to help a few times,
so I can see some water colors of her own in the near future.

Hope you'll give this a try and if you have any questions leave me a comment.

Outline: Tumbled Glass

Skin: Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Worn Lipstick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
Shirt: Shaded Lilac
Pants: Black Soot, Stormy Sky
Boots: Walnut Stain
Flower Center: Mustard Seed
Flowers: Pumice Stone, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass, Spiced Marmalade

I think just the Spiced Marmalade would be great by its self.
