FS535 - Hello Love


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers Featured Stamper Lynda (aka JustCallMeNana) !

I chose this card as my inspiration:



I focused on:
-rainbow strip
-lifted watercolour technique
-layout

I changed:
-no tag for sentiment
-black die cuts and card base instead of white
-sequins instead of hearts

I used:
-SugarPea Designs Talk is Chic
-SugarPea Designs Heart Journal Card

I learned about this technique from Lynda, who learned from Jennifer McGuire. It gives really fun results by 'trapping' vibrant colour under clear embossing before lifting some of the watercolour away. I made a quick video:

I love this technique, Ardyth, and I'm glad you showed it in your video. I know I saw Jennifer's but I have a tendency to forget since there are so many ideas floating around out there.

Lindsey said...

Yay! Another technique you've tried out first, so I can try next. :D

SO cool! Love the bright colors. Can't get the video to open (at work) but will definitely be checking it out at home this afternoon!
