FINISH MY CARD COLLAB part 2 with Darlene DeVries

Share This!


I hope you enjoyed our first video collaboration!  Now it’s time for Part 2.  I had so much fun making this video – a bit of Watercoloring, some Clear Emboss Resist, some watercolored, glittery stars…ooooh, BOY!

Watch the video to see how I made the first part, then head over to Darlene’s blog to see how she made my elements into a card.  As I write this, I haven’t seen it yet.  I’m sitting on the edge of my seat, y’all!

Have a super day!


edited to add:  The only thing – when I finished the card – was that the greeting didn’t show up as well as I would have liked. I was so concerned with everything else on the card that I didn’t even really notice that until I was putting it in the envelope. Darlene picked up on that right away and had the perfect solution.  You will love it!

    Your watercolored circle was so fun and Darlene’s black to highlight the sentiment was fab. I loved all your sparkly stars and the different at you colored them.

    I may have to try this stickles dye technique, especially after seeing the finished card!

  • Denise Gebalski April 24, 2014, 2:52 am

    Thanks for the tutorial. Yes, I will try the watercolor focal point. I didn’t know that you could dye sticle type glitter glue. Great tip. Now off to Darlene’s site to see what she did.
