Kaleidacolors Background Cards II

My second background sheet is done with Royal Satin Kaleidacolors and an old favorite PSX leaf.
The same process was used as on the first background I shared with you last week, but this one was created on a 12" piece of white cardstock (Bazzill), cut in half. This cardstock doesn't warp quite as much as the watercolor paper, but it still needs a little pressing.  I used Bronze Perfect Pearls powder (Ranger) this time, and the leaves were embossed with clear embossing powder after the bronze powder was added. (Refer to Kaleidacolors Backgrounds Fun, part 1 for the process)
The base for this card is made from the same white Bazzill cardstock, cut  6" x 12" for a 6" square card. For the front, I inked the stamp and spritzed it with water before I stamped. I stamped twice without reinking (each time), just to  add some watercolor effects for the background.
The rectangular panel is layered with coordinating background paper and the 3" circle is layered on white and trimmed with deckle edge scissors. I punched the flower from a scrap piece of the coordinating paper and a scrap piece of white that I stamped the leaf on and spritzed.
The text was stamped on this piece as well and just cut into a panel with deckle edge scissors. I also punched out a 3/4" circle for the flower center.  The flower pieces were layered and I added some little stick-on cyrstals to the center. I got lucky and found some ribbon at Michaels that happened to be a perfect match to the Royal Stain Kaleidacolors background piece. Here is the finished card:
Here is the original background that inspired this blog:
and the two cards I made from this background:
The shell on the square card was cut from a walllpaper border! I wish I did have a shell stamp that size, though!  I made that card from my son-in-law.
I hope you have fun trying this technique, and remember, you can do this with any non-permanent dye ink, including markers!  I like using the Kaleidacolors rainbow pads because you instantly have a variety of inks to work with. The combinations are just endless!
Happy Stampin'!
