I started this card with the embossed swirl background applying copper pigment ink to the raised surfaces. I watercoloured the rest of it in blue giving it a very watery look. Some of the copper ink reactivated and added to the cool look of the background. I mounted it to a brown card front. I used a stamped light house image to create a tile as a focal element. I trimmed the image, painted it with watercolour, applied a layer of clear Versamark ink to the dry surface and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I dunked the hot surface into the pile of embossing powder and heated it again to melt the embossing powder that stuck to the surface. I repeated this process several more times and got a nice tile finish on the image. It was somewhat warped so I adhered it to a piece of cardstock to stabilize it. On hindsight, it would have been better to stabilize it before applying the ink and embossing powder. I mounted my image into the frame of the swirly pattern using 3D foam tape. I love the soft look of this card!. I punched a laser printed greeting, colour washed it before punching the hole and flagging the end. I added a brown thread to the hole, threaded it between the image and the background and tied a knot.
