My good friend Denette asked me to do a workshop for her last Saturday. She's been stamping for quite awhile, and knows so many techniques that I wasn't sure what I could do at her workshop that would WOW her! Luckily there was an article in the Stampin' Success magazine (from Stampin' Up! for demonstrators) about heat embossing and watercoloring together. Perfect!
This is the card I demo'd, based on a scrapbook page that was shown in the article. I used the set Flower Fancy and the colors are Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Perfect Plum and Early Espresso. If you would like to learn this technique, let's do a workshop and I'll demo it for you and your friends!
Can you tell I've needed to use bright colors lately? I am so ready for spring! This was the Make-N-Take for the workshop. I started with the Ice Cream Parlor Designer Series Paper and used the colors that are in it: Peach Parfait, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, and Pacific Point. The image is from the Sale-A-Bration set Punch Bunch. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the image, the Melon Mambo scalloped square, and the Daffodil Delight piece were all embossed with the Square Lattice folder at once. This is called Inlaid Embossing. Another cool technique! Thanks to Gretchen B. for the inspiration on this card.
