Fifth Avenue Floral Reinker Spread Technique

Click on photo to enlarge image! This is not a new technique, but one of my favorites especially for this stamp set-Fifth Avenue Floral. It is called reinker spread and I have taught this technique to my stamp club and to Heartland Stampers-a group who meet monthly at Urbandale library. First heat emboss an image with lots of lines to create closed spaces. I really like to use Stampin'Up! shimmer white cardstock. Heavily spritz cardstock with water and use an aqua painter to lightly touch reinker to the water and watch it spread. Allow to dry and cut out image for your focal point. I completed my cards with Stampin'Up! exclusive top note sizzix die and little leaves sizzlet.
