For three of the cards I'm sharing, I used techniques that I learned from videos by Jennifer McGuire. HERE is a link to her YouTube channel.
I used ink blending over heat embossed images on this first card. After blending the ink, I painted the leaves and flowers using just water.
This was such a fun technique and much easier than I thought it would be. I looking forward to doing more of this!
My last card today is much different than the previous cards. For this one I heat embossed my image using clear embossing powder. Then, using a water brush, I colored the image with distress inks. Just smoosh some onto a craft mat and pick up color with a wet brush. I rarely color on black card stock, so this was quite an experiment for me. It's something I might have to play around with a bit more, to see what else I can do.
Well, now you know how I spent my Saturday afternoon! I had planned to host a crafting day at my home yesterday, but the snow storm that was forecast changed those plans. Thankfully, we didn't get any snow. That was a very NICE surprise!
