So I recently made a set of cards that are all a little different but use the same technique. I stamped the white paper with a background stamp in a permanent brown dye ink and let dry. Then I heat embossed a tree image on top of the background with Versa Mark ink and white embossing powder. I die cut the image out with a Sizzix die and then I inked the die cut with green and brown distress inks. I didn't really take the time to blend the colors well because what I was mostly going for was the resist of the tree image. I sprayed the die cut with a dash of water and it all just came together beautifully.
I believe the background stamp is by Hero Arts, tree stamp by Stampin Up, and the sentiment by Stamp N Plus. The patterned paper is by October Afternoon (brown polka dot) and Basic Grey (green strip in the middle).
