Here's a colourful card with a fun technique. I played around with some watercolours and different resist techniques and thought that a white wax crayon might work well together with a dry embossed paper, rubbing the crayon on the embossed parts before painting. I thought the result was pretty cool, lots of texture. I'll do a tutorial on this another day, totally forgot to take step-by-step photos as I was busy with the backgrounds (I made a whole bunch). I mixed up the pink in watercolour paint and painted it rather unevenly on the embossed watercolour paper, letting the paint pool in some areas.

A length of tissue paper was coloured with Spiced Marmalade Distress Stain and dried with a heat gun. Then I made a flower in the same way as Tim did during 12 tags of Christmas. The flourishes were cut from grungeboard, painted white and then coated with glossy accents and orange glitter. TFL!!
