Inspired by Nature Emboss Resist with Fresh Cuts

I had so much fun playing along with the 2nd Stampin' Addicts Iron Stamper/Throwdown Day of Challenges!!! The theme for this challenge was to use 3 different stamp sets, including a sentiment. I used Fresh Cuts, Inspired by Nature and Friends Never Fade for the sentiment. I got the original idea for this technique from Brandi Wiggins here.
Inks: Marina Mist, Old Olive, Concord Crush, Versamark
Papers: Whisper White, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Nursery Suite
Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Top Note Die, Sizzix Clearlits Scallop Rectangle
1) First I colored onto the stamp, Inspired by Nature using the following Stampin' Write markers: Old Olive, Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue.
2) Huff on the stamp and stamp onto Whisper White Cardstock. Before removing your stamp, put the black part of the Stamp-a-ma-jig into place so you can reposition the stamp for the next step.
3) Be sure to keep the Stamp-a-ma-jig in place when you remove the stamp. Clean the stamp and ink with Versamark. Stamp directly over the Inspired by Nature image again with Versamark. You can also use your Versamarker instead of the Stamp-a-ma-jig.
4) Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
5) Using the Fresh Cuts background stamp, stamp over the top of the flower image using Versamark. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
6) Starting from the center working out, gradually sponge on three different colors. I used Marina Mist in the center, then Certainly Celery, and Bashful Blue.
7) Cut out the image with the Top Note die.
