I did a demonstration last night and here's what I demoed. The card is so pretty. The technique I used was embossing resist. To get this look though, I stamped my image in staz-on on vellum cardstock, then stamped the En Francais background stamp over in versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I water colored the image with markers and my aqua painters. So pretty.
This is the swap I did for the meeting. The theme, was favorite colorbook technique (watercolor crayons, markers, blender pens, etc). I used watercolor crayons for mine and some crystal effects on the frog. I also embossed the card with the big shot.
