More Embossed Toilet Paper!

Hi Dreamers!
I have more of the embossed Toilet Paper today!!  There is still plenty of time to join in the Blockheads Technique Challenge.    I call this card "Dragonflies at Sunset".



I used the same technique as my first card.  But, this time I added ink to the wet Toilet paper.

Materials List:
Stamps:
Inspired By Nature Full Sheet
Toilet Paper 2 ply
Embossing Folder: Fancy and Floral Set Texture Fades
Reinkers:
Ginger Adirondack 
Rusty Hinge Distress Ink
Ink: 
Onyx Black Versafine
Peach and Rust CS

While layering the Toilet paper, I added drops of the reinkers and then sprayed more water on.    After the embossed TP was completely dry, I stamped the cattails and dragonflies with Onyx Black ink.   I applied the glue to the CS instead of the embossed TP.  I did not plan it, but the ink colors ended up looking just like a sunset.




I stamped the same images on the peach CS for the inside of the card as seen below.  This would be a great general thinking of you card or even a birthday card.




I hope you will join us for the challenge.  I know this technique looks hard, but it really is simple.  And you can make a whole stack at one time.
I hope you are having a great day.  We are having the most beautiful weather today here in Michigan.  I worked in the garden most of the day today.  I extended a bed.  I put a new rose bush and two hostas in the bed so far.  I may add a few more small things.   I will take some photos tomorrow and show you what I did.
 Love ya!
Karen

How cool is this- love the technique - I would have assumed that if you stamped on TP it would bleed.....LOVE this technique and your great sunset!
