Embossing and Watercoloring with Inspired By

Ouch, I've been such an infrequent poster lately, and for that I'm sorry.... I've been really busy here at home with the boys, soccer two nights a week and I feel like I'm always running behind.
We've been relying on crock pot meals (um, delicious!) and take out pizza (love the no-dishes to do.)

I've found however, that if I don't find at least a little time to get crafty, I get super, super cranky.  I've been trying to get a jump start on projects for the next My Favorite Things release.  (sorry, that's such a tease, I know...)

I have been on a kick making tags the last week, this is the first of a *bunch* that you'll be seeing from me over the next few weeks.  I love that this satisfies my need to create, and they'll be put to good use as gift packaging or tucked into gift ensembles.  I think this one, in particular, makes a pretty sweet bookmark.

This week's Feature Friday video focuses on watercoloring and heat embossing.  I finally got a chance to play with my new Twinkling H2O's, and all I can say is why haven't I used these before?  I love them!

I've used the Inspired by Flowers (set 3) along with the sentiment from Inspired by Flowers (set 2) I overstamped the image with the script from First Class Friends and added a little border detail with the Solid Bracket Border.  These Inspired By images are really so easy to color.  The illustrator has done all the work for you, so that all you need to do, is add shading and additional layers of color where the images are darkest, the guesswork is totally out of the picture. Nice!

Have a WONDERFUL weekend, and thanks for visiting!
