I added drops of reinker to my clay and ended up with a color similar to silly putty (NOT what I was going for) I laid acetate diecut leaves and cut around them with a knife. I then inked the canvas bg stamp and the spatter from French Foliage with Versamark and different color inks to press patterns into the leaves. Then I used a stylus to add the veining.
After they dried, I wet a brush slightly then put drops of reinker directly onto my brush and painted the color right onto the leaves and I gave them gloss by painting them with Crystal Effects.
Here's the final card-still need to work A LOT more on the techniques! My biggest take home is to be sure to roll onto something you're going to be able to remove the clay from easily. I ended up having to re-roll and try again due to sticking and that's what ended up muddying my colors so much.
