...the possiblities.  Sharing a card I made using what I found to be called the magic reinker technique.  Basically, you stamp an image with versamark on SU!'s white shimmer paper, emboss it with black embossing powder, then spritz it with water (using a sprayer bottle).  Immediately, drop some ink onto the puddled water on the image and see the ink magically spread.  I've read where some use the ink straight from a reinker bottle but, I found that using a container (like an artist paint tray) to hold ink and using an aquapainter to pick it up and drop it onto the image, gave me better results.  Let the image dry for about 30 minutes or so, and then use it on your card.      

I used a favorite new floral stamp set, SU!'s Fabulous Florets, along with it's coordinating embossing folder. A piece of whisper white textured was used with the embossing folder and everything else was done on plain whisper white cardstock.   A sentiment from the set Word Play was stamped in black Stazon onto vellum cardstock. 

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful day!
