Reinker Spread Technique

Last night we had our Cardmaker's club meeting and I showed them the reinker spread technique.  I have seen other demonstrators tutorials but thought I'd try to make my own with photos.  

Here are the supplies all ready to go - Pretty in Pink, Tangerine Tango, Riding Hood Red.

Emboss the large flower image with Versamark and white embossing powder onto Shimmery White paper (you need a thicker paper to hold the water in the next step.)
Spritz the paper thoroughly with water.

Add a few drops of reinker fluid to a paint tray.  With an aqua painter pick up the lightest colour of ink and touch the tip of the painter to the water. Repeat in various areas of the flower.

Repeat with all the colours of ink.

Continue until the entire flower is entirely coloured and allow LOTS of time to dry. 1/2 hr or more depending on the amount of water on the surface.

Trim out the flower and add to the card. Voila!

 This is where I first found the technique and colour scheme. Thanks Sharon Rogers for a great video.

Try this new technique this weekend - it's pretty fun!
