Watermark Look with Spritz

Today I'm going to show you how to make a watermark look with clear embossing powder and Spritz.

First, gather your supplies. You will need: Smooth cardstock, a background stamp (this one is by Green Grass stamps), watermark ink (like VersaMark), clear embossing powder (mine is by Ranger), a heat gun, paper towels, and your favorite color of Spritz! I am using Bed of Roses Spritz.

Stamp your image on your cardstock using watermark ink. I stamped mine twice to create a row of my dot pattern. I wasn't too concerned about lining up the pattern exactly because I knew I was going to be building my layers on top of the watermark.

While the ink is still wet, pour clear embossing powder onto the stamped image. Shake off the excess and melt the powder using a heat gun. Your paper will look something like this.

Next, spray your ink over the image. The ink will soak into the cardstock, but not into the clear embossed pattern. Use a paper towel to blot the ink off of the clear embossed powder.

You will now have a watermark type image showing through your Spritz.

Build your layout for a really neat look! Page created using the Urban Anthology August Tea for Two kit.

To enhance the flowers on this page I painted them with Gold Glimmer Blingz. I love this color! Such a warm hint of shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by!
