watercoloring video tutorial at The Classroom + a giveaway


Today I am thrilled to be the guest designer on the Ellen Hutson blog, The Classroom! I have a great video tutorial for you about water coloring heat embossed images. Its an easy, yet elegant technique that will help your Christmas card making along, because I know I am not the only one still working on finishing their cards! Please tell me I am not the only one! :)

The images from the set, Mistletoe & Holly, lent themselves perfectly to this technique. Such a gorgeous set of holiday images designed by Julie Ebersole! This set is a classic, one that I will hang on to for a very long time. Look at those fantastic images! They make me want to head right back in my office and stamp more! 


And now for a chance to win! Yay for prizes! Leave a comment on this post from now until 
Saturday, December 19 at 10 pm central. I will draw the name of one lucky commenter and you will win the prize above! How great is that?! 


thanks for stopping by!
