Holly's Workshop

I had a workshop at Holly's this weekend...she had only one request! She wanted to learn how to use the BigShot! I guess I did a good job, because at the end of the workshop...she really wanted one! Hopefully she buys one for herself or someone that likes her a lot gets her one for Christmas. :)

Anyway, we did the more intense card first. We used the Vintage Embossing Folder, the Square Lattice folder, and the Scalloped Rectangle clearlit with the bigshot. We also used the Level 1 Hostess set, called Because I Care. The technique that we used on this card was a Watercolor technique, done by mooshing (technical terms here, only) an ink pad, and then using an aqua painter to pick up the ink on the lid of the pad. Repeat with 3+ colors, and you get a fast color that looks MARVELOUS!

Secondly, we used the BigShot just to do an easy card with a pop of texture (embossing folder again) through the bigshot. We used the new Friends Never Fade set for this one. A little bit of Dazzling Diamonds for Pop...and voila!
