This top card is the card we did at Stamp Club. Others are just other examples displayed during class.
Card is an almost direct CASE (sentiment changed) of a card on splitcoaststampers by jemur posted on 5/5/09. Rose is heat embossed with white embossing powder onto SHIMMERY WHITE CARDSTOCK, then sprayed with water until it puddles. Then, using Aquapainter, you touch the water in the various sections and it spreads. Need to be careful not to touch the cardstock though - just the water. The put aside to dry. If have too much water, can soak good bit of it up with the corner/edge of a paper towel and then set aside to dry. Card base and leaves are Certainly Celery cardstock. Ribbon is Certainly Celery ribbon (retired Sale-A-Bration 2009 item) - 16"; white striped paper run through the Big Shot with the Top Note die is specialty "Bride" scrapbooking paper - beautiful paper! Reinkers used for the Reinker Spread technique were Regal Rose and Apricot Appeal, I think. The original card indicates Regal Rose and Cameo Coral Reinker. Stamp set is Fifth Avenue Floral. Sizzlits Little Leaves die. Sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamped onto large oval layerd onto scalloped oval. Rose is from SU! Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.
There was another card posted later that had a black card base, Whisper White Top Note, and Rose Red was used for the reinker. The black card base made it really pop. See mdoron5131 card dated 8/8/09.

Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set
This last example has nothing to do with the reinker technique, but is here to show you another way to use the Fifth Avenue Floral rose. This rose was stamped 3 times and two of the images cut out and popped up on Dimensionals. The bottom layer is the whole image, the second layer has part cut off, and the third layer has even more cut off. This would probably have been prettier had I embossed the image, and I don't really like the sponging, but was trying that to give it some more definition so could see the various layers. See example done by raqode7 on 5/8/09.
