Watercoloring and Heat Embossing with Beautifully Happy

My Facebook Live demonstration focused on tips and tricks for easy water-coloring of a heat-embossed, stamped image.  By heat embossing (with gold:) the large flower from Beautifully Happy stamp set (free with a $100 order thru Feb. 2023), I created boundaries that make water coloring extra easy.Here are a few points about my design:  1. Using only 2 ink colors, I was able to produce lovely shades of both colors2.Water coloring with ink refills allowed me to vary the depth of color3.  I opted to stamp the greetings directly on the focal piece vs adding a flag, punch, die, etc.  That kept the focus on my flowers.
