That sounds like the title of a new “Stephanie Plum” novel, doesn’t it? Those are so fun to read; they’re great “beach books.” I was searching for new techniques and color combinations so I could slowly inch away from the cloisonné (ooh! a little “Friday Rhyme” there for you). This one doesn’t use any new techniques; it’s basic watercoloring, although I did add a little Crystal Effects to the jar (but you can’t really see it in the photo – or the glitter in the centers of the flowers).

Isn’t that ribbon cute? That’s what happens to the organza ribbon when you heat it. I found out by accident. I had dyed some and wanted to speed up the drying time, so I started to zap it with my heat tool. It crinkles up really nicely! You do want to be careful not to burn it or heat too long, because it will melt holes in it.
Tomorrow I’ll show you a card I made using two techniques I found. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping in!
