Today we take a dramatic turn from the last two whimsical posts. There are some people I know that are going through trying times right now with physical pain. One of them is my little Hunter Bunter. She’s dealing with a knee injury that happened during a soccer game. She had looked through the Occasions catalog when I first received it and she really liked the Beautiful You set. It has sweet sentiments and lovely brush artwork. When she saw there were new Watercolor Pencils that included her favorite colors Pacific Point and Pumpkin Pie, she insisted we needed them. My little enabler! I am glad that I bought them. The texture of the pencils is smooth and perfect with the Blender Pens. I wanted a subtle background and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder seemed like a good fit, as it appears to be tiny raindrops falling. And with that, I hope a card will help cheer my Huntley up, if only for a moment.

I have been so anxious to share this card with all of you! So, this is the “Orange Peel” technique that Stampin’ Up shared at Convention:
- Stamp your design on Watercolor Paper.
- Using a Stampin’ Spritzer, lightly spritz with plain water. Just 2 or 3 full spritzes unless you want the colors to run more.
- Pour on Clear Embossing Powder and shake off the excess. Since we’re covering the entire piece, there is no need for the Embossing Buddy.
- Using the Heat Tool on the high setting, melt the embossing powder. Hold the heat tool at an angle and you can see the ripples forming!
As a few of my club members mentioned, this technique is perfect for water! I can’t wait to try that next!
