Upsy Daisy continued

Sorry I forgot to post this yesterday but here is the third set of Upsy Daisy cards that I promised after the blog tour.  This is a set of 3x3 cards.  I still need to make a box for them so I can give them as a gift, but here are the cards.

up3x3 I just love these little cards, they are so fun to stick in the kids (or husband’s) lunch box, or with a gift to a friend, or even to tuck in a handmade goodie for the neighbor.    To make the clouds I just drew a simple cloud on a scratch piece of paper and cut it out.  Then starting at the top you use a sponge to add the ink around the edge of your cloud mask, working at the top of the page going down.  The daisies are embossed by first inking up with versamark ink and then taking the inked stamp inking it up again in the color that I wanted.  The of course just pour on the embossing powder and heat away!

So you just used classic ink but could still emboss with it because you used the versamark first?
