Wisdom Journal - Blank Page Muse May Challenge

It is time for another fun challenge over at the Blank Page Muse Stamps blog! This month the theme is embossing any way! This is truly one of my favorite things to work with as far as texture!! The possibilities are endless with embossing powders! For all of the details on the challenge and to view the entire team's inspirational projects click the photo link below!!

For this adorable journal page I used the following supplies:
Blank Page Muse Stamps
Ranger Distress Inks
Ranger Distress Markers
Brown StazOn ink pad
Versamark inkpad
Watercolor Pencils
Watercolor Paper
Clear Embossing Powder
Lindy's Embossing Powder Desert Moon Copper Pine

First I created a background on watercolor paper. Using versamark clear inkpad and the BPM leaves stamps from the set I stamped around the bottom corner. The stamping was then coated with clear embossing powder and heat set.

Distress inks in several colors were added using a sponge applicator over the embossed areas. This technique fills in the negative space with ink and enhances the embossed stamping.

I stamped the owls using Brown versamark inkpad. They were coated in clear embossing powder, heat set, and then colored in with watercolor pencils. They were fussy cut and adhered to the page with an adhesive glue stick.
 A quote was added along with some highlighting and edging using distress inks.
Finally, Lindy's embossing powder was added to the lacey outline and to some splatters to add a bit more sparkle. Below are the closer views.

Thanks so much for viewing my post! I hope that you are inspired to enter the challenge at The Blank Page Muse Stamps Blog!
