TGIF everyone! Today I have a pretty watercolor technique for you that’s SUPER easy – I’ve showed it before in a limited way, just down the side of a card HERE ….but I’ve wanted to do a whole page of it. Soo with the new release from Colorado Craft Company – it’s time!

I used a 9×12 sheet of Arches Cold Press paper, embossed the flowers, then went to town with my paints! Watch:
For my finished projects – cards and bookmarks! Each was layered on cream cardstock then on a really heavyweight yellow – I wish I could remember where I got it, I need more 🙁
My little aha moment was when stamping in Versafine – the ink looked thin/greyish when stamped on the underlying embossing. But adding some black embossing powder and heating that up fixed it right up!
My Bible Journaling Books
I’m not sure what’s going on with my books – for now we might be reaching the bottom of the barrel for books. I bought a few cases when the books first came out, and have been signing them and selling them wholesale to Ellen Hutson so they’re available for folks to buy. I don’t have a ton left – so get them while they’re here! If they sell out before you get there be sure to click “notify me” and they’ll let me know how many more are requested; I only have half a case of each book. Hopefully one day the publisher will finally answer my emails and I’ll find out if I ever will get royalties or have options to buy books wholesale!

You might try Papertrey Ink for cardstock. They have 30+ colors and their prices are some of the best I have found ($3/12, $5/24, $9/50) and the weight is excellent. I have used StampinUp products for 20 years and PTI cardstock is every bit as heavy, if not heavier.
I love this effect! It reminds me of beautiful English or French wallpaper. I hope you can get more information about your book and the publisher who has your work. You deserve to own the rights to it.
I certainly hope you will get some royalties!
These are so pretty
I’m always glad to see you in my inbox
So beautiful, Sandy! Great scripture!
So soft! I love this effect – gonna have to try it right now. Lots of great ideas popping into my head from your comments about all the color possibilities… Thank you so much!
