Stampin before the Sun

Do you ever have a day when your brain is on fire with ideas...

couldn't sleep
so I got up and started stamping
a few hours later the sun came up ~ 

emboss the white cardstock first
wet it on both sides
then hand paint it with a dark colored ink refill
as it dries the ink will settle into the raised image
the white specks are table salt
I'll brush them off once it dries

the colors are eggplant and crushed curry
the rectangle in the center was created using a versamark ink pad

Here is the finished card
