It's been a while since I've used watercolor crystals so decided to play with those today. The result was a masculine card - although I think it could be gender neutral. I also wanted to try out a new glittery EP that puffs up when heat is applied. I like the puffiness but the glitter does not photograph.
Lesson I should have learned by now: I live in Arizona and today's temperature is 104 F (40 C). Although the central air conditioner is on today, I also have the ceiling fan in my sewing/craft room working. I should always turn that fan off when using embossing powder or watercolor crystals. It took a bit of time to wipe away the fine powder from various surfaces. Happens every time.
