It is easy to do. You simply stamp an image with clear embossing ink, sprinkle with clear embossing powder, hear and paint over it with a light watercolor. Let it dry, stamp and emboss more and paint it with a darker shade. Repeat these steps for an interesting look. See photos for details:

Stamp and emboss on watercolor paper then paint with a light color of watercolor paint.

Repete with a darker color, I embossed when the paper was a bit damp so some of the image would flake off and look more authentic...Sure I did that on purpose!

When you are done you can place the batik paper between scrap paper and iron it to remove the embossing if you like but I don’t bother, I’m lazy;-) The stamps in this project are by Inque Boutique, Thanks to Mitzi for giving me her set!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
