Hi GardenCat! The focal panel on these cards was made from watercolor paper. I applied two colors of Distress Ink with a blending tool and foam. Then I spritzed water on it and immediately dried it with a heat tool. That is how I got the water splotchy effect before stamping & embossing.
Nice set of cards, understated and elegant, I think.
I noticed that the paper the leaves are stamped on has a subtle water spotted pattern on it. I'm wondering if it came like that or is that an effect you achieved with ink and water splattering or some other technique? I'd love to know if you don't mind sharing.
