For the palm tree I stamped it in clear embossing ink and then clear heat embossed it. I then rubbed the close to cocoa ink over it lightly and blended it with a baby wipe. **Be carful not to rub to much or the paper will start to peel**
For the background I first stamped it with the french script in close to cocoa ink. Then I distressed the edges and stamped the postage background and clear embossed it. Then I made a water/food dye solution and put it in a spritzer bottle. Last, I lightly sprayed the paper and dabbed off any extra colour from the embossed areas. This technique is very fun to experiment with and looks super cool.
