Emerging Color Technique

I have a stamp club meeting on Friday and needed to come up with a new technique to show. I chose "Emerging Color" and will more than likely do this technique for most of my stamp clubs. The process is really quite easy.
You stamp a smaller image in different colors randomly over a piece of white card stock. Then using a solid image stamp it with Versa Mark ink and heat emboss it with Clear Embossing Powder. After you have done that, you simply brayer a darker color over the entire sheet and wipe clean when you have covered it completely! Isn't that easy?!?!
I distressed the edges of the Soft Sky panel and the Guava mat as well. I wish I could say that the chocolate ribbon is still available from Stampin Up! but it isn't. They retired it with the catalog that came out in July. Of course we still have the 5/8" Chocolate, but I thought it was too wide for this application. I hope you have a great day!
Supplies Used: Chocolate Chip cs, ink, grosgrain ribbon, Soft Sky cs, ink, Groovy Guava cs, ink, Versa Mark ink, Clear Embossing Powder, brayer, White Gel Pen, Circle Punches, Paper Piercer, Canvas, Refuge and Strength.

I really like that color combo... Maybe I can use that for my shoebox. I still need to figure that out.
