  1. Jennifer,
    Your cards are beautiful and so inspiring to try this technique! I appreciate your videos and up-close views of your cards. You are such a sweet, kind person. A true blessing to your family, friends, our craft world and the world. Take care.

  2. Awesome technique! A must-try on my list. Thanks for making me laugh. WC in Europe is used for Water Closets (toilets) 😀

  3. Thanks, Jennifer, for yet another way to use our embossing folders. They are so versatile and at a great price point for the investment. Love all your ideas for variety of mediums to use for creating these delightful backgrounds. You are so inspiring!

  4. The layers of colors are AMAZING!!!!! I can’t get over how cool these look. I need to go back and read about how you did them! I’d love to see a video….

  5. Dear Jennifer
    As always you have taken Altenew products to another level with your amazing skills in crafting. Love the cards and i am sure going to try it .tks for the inspiration.tc stay safe

  6. Jennifer, as always I am impressed with how you come up with unique ways to use products and encourage us to use your techniques with products we already have! I discovered Lindy’s Magical Powders several years ago and love using them to make amazing backgrounds for my cards and to watercolor with for some brilliant colors! But I never would have thought of applying them to my embossing folders to make some outstanding card backgrounds! Thank you for constantly inspiring us to use our supplies in new and unique ways! I had such fun making 4 cards using this technique! In addition I made a 5th card background with a 5”square piece of watercolor paper to “clean” the leftover colors off my work surface between backgrounds! A Loyal follower, Debby Willis.
    PS. I wanted to post a picture of the cards I made with this technique but could not find a way to do so. Is that not permitted?
