MIM #153

Make It Monday #153: Watercolored Backgrounds With Heat Embossed Sentiments

You can watch Dawn McVey's video HERE on this week's MIM.  This is a great technique and one I have actually tried before ;-)

 I will try to get an outside photo tomorrow because this card is prettier than this picture shows...but it's after 11:00 PM, the lighting in my craft room does not show it's true colors.

The 'Birds on a Wire' stamp  and the flower image from PTI's Spiral Bouquet stamp set were embossed with white powder onto the green watercolored background on Stamper's Select White card stock. the print paper underneath has the same green as does the jute twine tied onto a button and glued on the sparkly sun burst.



  1. Love the bird on the wire. Isn't watercoloring fun?!?!?

  2. Very pretty! Love watercoloring. Such a fun technique with a different look each time! :)

  3. Love this! Helen your embossed image is adorable. It's so hard to get a good picture at night. I sure enjoyed this technique .
