    Three beautiful backgrounds on your video…love the bright colors. Didn’t know they had a tool to erase off a smudge, wish I had it today for a smudge I had on the card I just created.

    Beautiful card! I just used this technique a couple of days ago. 😀 My big take-away from Karolyn’s video (and I’m bonking myself on the forehead) is that the powder tool can be used to prevent embossing powder from sticking where you don’t want it. I didn’t know that! I’ve only used it to destickify foam tape. Thank you, Karolyn!

    Like the wonderful scene created with the masking & Distress Inks. Like the added flamingo for dimension & sequins for glitter sparkle.
