These both started with a plain piece of watercolor paper that was stamped repeatedly with the same image using Versamark ink and then heat embossed. Once that was done I blended a bunch of Distress Ink with water and a brush. The lighting is poor right now, so the photos aren't the greatest and I don't think you can see the embossing, but I promise it is there!
Here is the inspiration sketch...
Here are my two cards...
I cut the painted embossed piece of paper along the stamp lines and used the positive piece on the above card and the negative piece below (or vice versa..whichever way you choose to look at it!).
