Simply Sketched Thank You

For this card I used the hostess set "Simply Sketched" from the 2013/2014 catalog. This set is so versatile and so much fun. 
The image was stamped with black StazOn on Watercolor paper and colored with the Stampin' Up! markers. Then I heat embossed the picture with clear embossing powder and watercolored the background right over it. Stamp the sentiment, add a little ribbon bow and a few rhinestones for the bling and voilà.

  1. This is beautiful. I love the idea of doing the stamped image first, then heat emboss before water coloring. I can't wait to try it.

  2. I'm trying to recreate your card. can you please share how exactly you got the embossing powder on the stmped image? Thanks!

  3. I covered the stamped image with Versamark and then sprinkled it with clear embossing powder to heat emboss.
