Best Embossing Book Ever

Happy Friday!!  I hope you've enjoyed the past week with the various posts from the Stampendous Design Team showcasing the many techniques in Fran Seiford's new book, Embossing Powder Techniques from A-Z.  Fran is the owner and founder of Stampendous and has been using these techniques for 35 years.  The book is absolutely amazing, very clear instructions and so easy to follow and learn from!  Also, in case you didn't already know, Stampendous is now carrying the Milwaukee Heat Tool by Wagner.  Truly one of the best heat tools out there!

I made this card using two Techniques, J - Watercolor Resist with White on page 29 and S - Encrusted Jewel beginning on page 42. These are fun techniques, especially the watercolor resist.

Here's what I used to create this card:

Crayola® Washable Watercolor Paints
Coral Rose Cardstock by My Colors by My Mind's Eye™
May Arts Ribbon®
Zip Dry™ Paper Glue by Beacon

Here's a list of my teammates playing along today:
