Not a Sketch Challenge :)

I know you're surprised but my cards today are not from a sketch challenge.  :)
SplitCoastStampers has a Try a New Technique challenge on Mondays.
The technique today is to  use a waterbrush on white pigment ink on kraft cardstock.
First you heat emboss the image in white on kraft cardstock.  Then you use a waterbrush with white pigment ink to 'watercolor' your image.  Then you add color with the waterbrush and colored pigment ink. 

Here is my first attempt.

I really thought the technique was fun and I wanted to it with bolder colors.  So I embossed on white and used my waterbrush with Colorbox chalk ink.
This is what I created!
I really enjoyed this new technique and think I will be using it more in the future!!
