Buck Scene by Alison Heikkila


1. Cut a piece of watercolor paper down to 4" x 5 1/4."

2. Apply all of the Distress Oxide Inks (except Black Soot) to an Acrylic Handle and spritz with water.

3. Using a round brush, apply some water to the watercolor paper, and then begin to apply the wet inks to the paper randomly, concentrating color in the center. 

4. Use a heat tool to speed up the drying process. 

5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 until the desired look is achieved. 

6. Apply Black Soot Oxide Ink to the background using your preferred technique. 

7. Apply more of the original colors on top, if desired. 

8. Once the background is dry, use and anti-static powder tool all over the background to prevent the embossing powder from sticking where it shouldn't.

9. Stamp the Buck Scene in the center of the background with VersaMark Ink. 

10. Sprinkle Lapis Pearlustre embossing powder on top of the stamped image, shake off excess, and heat set. 

11. Create the card base out of Ocean Side cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 11." 

12. Adhere the watercolored and stamped layer to the card base.
