December 12

Happy Friday!! 

I'm excited about today's projects from Girl Friday Deepti! 
I love water color techniques and I also love stamped backgrounds. 
It never occurred to me to combine the two, but thankfully Deepti had this amazing thought.
The result is stunning!! 

Let's take a look at this sensational card using our Merry Kiss-mas stamp set... 

At first glance you see the fun focal point with the whimsical mistletoe and the big bold sentiment. 
But look at that gorgeous green background. That isn't designer paper people, that is paper that has been designed using watercolor and both of the holly stamps to create a subtle but stunning background. 

She used the same techniques and added some bold stamping to really add some wow factor to her designed background... 
Using the sentiment from Must Love Snowflakes stamped in gold, and water color, she created a gorgeous background. But, then she stepped it up a notch by adding snowflakes from the same stamp set embossed in white!

Here is a closeup...
oh wow. Is that gorgeous or what?!
I love the addition of the big Flurry Fri-Die snowflake with the fun loops of metallic cord to bring it all together.
