The Art Impressions image (3180) was stamped in Black Soot archival ink onto 140 lb. water color card stock and colored with various distress markers and a water brush. I ran the bright lime green card base through the Provocraft Autumn Type embossing folder but only got a faint image - which was actually preferable. I smeared Versamark Ink over it hoping the raised portions would stand out. They did but not by much. So I smudged a brown distress ink over the whole thing and was quite pleased with the end result.
To you, CR, I wish you peace and contentment and all the blessings that you can have.
