What is your favourite thing about crafting?
I love that it connects me to crafty friends all
over the world. It’s such a wonderful community to be a part of.

If you could chose to do anything to do for the day, what would it be?
One of the things on my want to do list is to travel to the states to go to CHA and meet all those famous crafters and company owners.

Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
I’ve never really been very fashionable so probably nothing from my past fashion styles... I thought flares were pretty cool back in the day!

Painting with WOW! Embossing Glitter with Jenny

Hi Everyone!

It' Jenny here and today I'm going to show you a couple of fun techniques to combine your gorgeous WOW! embossing glitters with watercolor, including a superfun way to paint with embossing ink!


I also have a video up on the WOW! Embossing Channel on YouTube showing you exactly how I created these cards. 



I first created two watercolor blended panels to act as the backdrop for my embossing glitter.  I used hotpress watercolor cardstock adhered to a board, and then used clear water first to wet the panels.  I smushed some Distress Inks onto a craft mat and then dipped a wide flat paintbrush into water and then into each of the inks.  The panel on the left uses Pumice Stone, Iced Spruce and Stormy Sky, and the right hand side panel uses Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry.  On each panel I used my awesome WOW!

For the pink and yellow panel, before it dried, I spr…

I especially love pieces of art which involve doodling over watercolour and I thought this might be a cool way to use the new Refill and Freestyle Embossing Tool, by using it to doodle shapes.


To create this design I started with a piece of watercolour paper and drew a faint circle shape in pencil. I filled this shape with clean water then added drops of watercolour (I used ink sprays as the colours are so intense and rich) and watched the colour spread.


While the design is still wet, take a paintbrush and clean water and gently encourage the watercolour to leak out in places.



Dry this thoroughly then add doodles with the Embossing Tool. Add Embossing glitter and without melting it add more doodles until satisfied.Then heat the powder.




I finished off by embossing the word Sparkle and left it at that.

I absolutely love this tool, it's…
