Watercolor Wonder

I wanted to do something different with embossing folders and decided to use the Quatrefoil embossing folder to create some watercolor magic.  I swirled three colors of ink with daubers onto the raised surface (the side with the logo) of the folder. Then I spritzed it with water and then gently applied my cardstock carefully rubbing to collect the watery ink.

I sped up the drying process with a heat gun and after stamping the sentiment adhered the artwork to an embossed piece of cocoa cardstock topping it off with some adhesive gold sequins.
