Watercolor Smoosh

Welcome to another Thursday Video. Today we’re playing with the technique I have called Watercolor Smoosh. It’s lots of fun but you may get a bit inky. You wouldn’t be having fun if you didn’t get inky, right? Watercolor Smoosh Now on the video I didn’t have finished cards to show but said I’d add them to my post, so here is the one done on the Glossy Card card with the Watercolor Smoosh one on the baking paper.

Watercolor Embossing Folder

Watercolor Embossing This Watercolor Embossing is a fun technique. You can use both sides of your embossing folder to yield two different looks. Clean up is easy and you don’t need much in the way of equipment to do the technique. The card below was one I made from the embossed side of the Embossing Folder, Petal Burst which I used. I speak in the video of how to tell the difference between the embossed and debossed sides of your embossing… Read more »

Cross Over Pocket Card This Cross Over Pocket Card is a replay of another of my Facebook Live Videos which has been edited.

I don’t mind fussy… Read more »

Lost My Marbles I thought I had Lost My Marbles but it’s OK as I found them in a Clear Wood Mount Stampin’ Up! Case.  I did have a post about this last week but didn’t share exactly how to do it.

The one I have made looks suitable for a male but change the colours and even the stamp set to make one suitable for a female.

I will place all the instructions below the… Read more »
