Emboss Resist & Bookmark

I finally got my other card done that I started on Friday night with my crafty friends. For this card, we did an emboss resist with this gorgeous peacock image.   I sponged on some butterscotch first, then added some Wild Plum, Stream and Citrus.  

Here's a view of the inside of the card.  It has a perforated bookmark that can be removed by the recipient.  You can find a tutorial for the detachable bookmark card on Split Coast here.

Here's a close up of the bookmark.  To get this effect, I inked up a reverse stamp - Garden Silhouette with the green (citrus), then the turquoise (stream).  I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock.   Then, I misted water directly onto the stamp and re-stamped it onto another piece of white cardstock without adding any more ink.  I think it gives a such a pretty water coloured effect to the image.  So different from the one stamped without the water.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Yes Julie this card is one of the top favorites. I'm going to have to CASE technique on this one. The bookmark is cool too. I liked the water effect.
