More Worksheet Wonders

I wanted to try this technique again, using some different inks and powders. I had placed this worksheet in the bottom of my spray box.
Instead of inking on more color, I sprayed this sheet with water (the sprays were all watered based) and folded the paper over to pick up the extra color.
I dabbed off the extra water and heat set the paper. Then I stamped a leafy flourish stamp with Lumiere paint and heat set.
I added some more stamped images with Brilliance and Archival inks, covered the whole thing with clear embossing powder and heat set.
Very little embossing powder stuck to the paper so I ran a light colored Distress ink pad over the entire surface, covered with clear embossing powder and heat set again.
I then crinkled up the paper, ran the same Distress ink pad mainly over the wrinkly part, covered with a harvest embossing powder with glitter and heat set. I have a project in mind for some of this paper. (Sorry I didn't take a close up photo.)
