Picket Fence Studios and WOW Collaboration Blog Hop Day 2

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today the WOW Design Team are joining forces with the fabulous Picket Fence Studios for a fun-filled Blog Hop. 

If you’re following along the blog hop, you should have arrived here from Sara Sherlock. I’ll list all of today’s blog hop participants below, if you want to start at the beginning.

Don’t miss the chance to enter our giveaway – more details at the end of this post!


I’ve created two cards with the Picket Fence Studios I Work for Watercolor stamp set and WOW Clear Gloss and Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powders.

When painting with watercolours, I like to emboss my stamped images first. This helps to give a strong line and also contain the watercolour within the embossed lines.

As I wanted to use rainbow colours for my cards, I decided to stamp the images on watercolour card with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I embossed the lines with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder, then used my WOW dual speed heat tool to melt the powder.

I used Nuvo Shimmer Powders to paint my images, mixing the powders together to get a range of different colours. I added flicks of colour, then dried the panels with the heat tool. 

Next I stamped the large ‘be creative’ sentiment on both panels, using Versafine onyx black ink. This time, I embossed with WOW Neutral Shimmer powder for a touch of sparkle.

On the slimline paintbrush card, I also stamped a small sentiment and added a thin black strip of pearlescent black card at the base.

I think these cards would work well as framed art in a craft room too.
