"Smooshed" ink with an embossing folder

This card is an entry for a little challenge within my SU group. To make the background:

  • I smeared 3 different color ink to achieve an ombre effect onto an textured impression (embossing) folder, and sprayed water onto it. (I used a brayer to smooth out the ink and a Stampin' Spritz for to spray the water.) 
  • Then, I placed my watercolor paper facedown on the ink side. Close the embossing folder and pat it down gently. 
  • To get a softer look, I used a Stampin' Spritz to spray more water onto the panel. Let it dry for about 30 minutes or use a heat tool to speed the drying process.
