I love finding ways to stretch the use of my products. Altering products is one way :)
I started out my heat embossed the Wild Waters background set in gold embossing powder. I've masked away thick borders because I wanted to have that thick frame look.
I used my watercolour to colour the spaces between the waves. To make it more dimensional, I made sure to have some dark shades for each colour.
To embellished, I used the Word Bubble chipboard with the word "hello". But if you look at the product, the word is in a speech bubble. I didn't want that. Because this is chipboard, it was really easy to snip away the speech bubble part :) I coloured the word in black to make it stand out even more.

I used a detailed sharp scissors to cut the chipboard because it was small and soft. A thick scissors might not work very well :)
