Back to the embossing folders...

...but the coloring medium is different.
The base card is kraft card stock.
The main piece is another piece of kraft card stock that I ran through the BigKick with Darice's flower embossing folder.
However, instead of using the Derwent Inktense pencils, as the white didn't show up on the kraft paper that well I used Distress markers white and mowed lawn.
I stamped the verse from MFT's "rainbow greetings"in StazOn jet black and dotted the front of the card with the fine end of the markers.

To get a little more water color effect with the mowed lawn I applied a bit of water first before placing the marker on the leaves.
Be careful not to use too much as the kraft paper is not water color paper and will pill if too much water is applied.

Fabulous idea to colour the embossed pattern. So effective.

This card is as fresh as a daisy and I love the white dots.
