Another water colour embossed design

Hello again friends,

This morning I posted a card I made using an easy water colour/embossing technique that I learned from Lindsay Weirich, The Frugal Crafter. One of the things Lindsay advised was to not make your 'sandwich' too tight when you do your embossing or your water coloured piece will crack apart. Guess what happened?

Yep. Mine cracked apart. But I remembered one of my favourite sayings: "There are no mistakes in art; only opportunities to do it differently." Here is how I did it differently.
Thanks for visiting. Have you been picking up my free images? If not, take a look through my recent archives and see if there are any that you like. Enjoy!

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
