Splitcoaststampers Thursday Challenge - WT495 Ways to Use It

Autumn Leaves
Challenge may be found at:  http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/ways-use-f46/wt495-~-autumn-leaves-~-%7B09-04-2014%7D-t591642.html

SUPPLIES

Stamp Sets:
Leaf Print and City Scene Sent (text) 

Ink:
VersaMark, Dark Chocolate, Classic Kraft 

Paper:
Ivory and Kraft Card Stock as well as Autumn Abundance Pattern Paper

Accessories:
Ivory Twine, Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (clear), heat gun, Twill Ribbon, Score Tape, Orange Button, Dimensionals, Leafprint Dies

How to make the dew drops:
I first die cut the image and then soaked it by spritzing quite a bit of water on it.  I then used my heat gun to dry up most of the water, but the paper was still very wet.  While wet, I stamped my image and then immediately pressed ii into the VersaMark, covered it with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel and melted that with the heat gun.  I think because it was still quite wet it made the embossing enamel run a little when heated making the dew drop effect.
