Altenew Painted Rose in Watercolor – by Heidi Blankenship

I just adore the BOLD look of Heidi’s emboss resist watercolor roses on her thank you note today, softened by the white, vellum and sparkly sequins. The colors are captivating and the large roses are divine! Take a look:

Stunning! A wonderful technique to accent these large roses.

The white embossing is beautiful. I am naturally drawn to the metallics for embossing and just seem to forget about the beauty of white. Note made – white embossing is on the short list!!!

You can find Heidi’s post on her blog here.

As always she shares her “how-to”.
