I watched a Jennifer McGuire YouTube video this morning called Watercolor Lifting with Heat Embossing

It's a great video and the finished result was beautiful. I jumped on it. I wanted to try it right then. 

Well............just like baking you need to follow the recipe. I made a wrong turn in Albuquerque and used an open spaced stamp rather than a solid stamp. I wondered why it wasn't looking like Jennifer's until I went back and watched the part about the stamp. I do like the colors on my card even if I did make a big mistake. I'll go back to the drawing board. Just not today. 

Distress Inks- Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Peacock Feathers, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean
Papers- Strathmore 500 series watercolor & Bazzill
Sparkle N Sprinkle- Clear Detail embossing powder
Great Impression Flower Stamp H198

  2. What a sensational card, love these colours. You may not have used the same as Jennifer but you certainly succeeded in making a wonderful eye catching card.

  3. They are pretty colors! I'm trying to do the same thing and have been hunting for the right stamps, so stuck at the Albuquerque crossroads. lol!

    1. Thank you. I found out I only have 1 stamp that I could use for this technique but it's so small I won't. I'm going shopping at my girlfriend's first. I would love to get the one that Jennifer used from Paper Smooches. It's already sold out. Good luck in Albuquerque.
