as you see it - be you

hello friends and happy friday....I luv friday's, don;t you? I had such fun with this card, adding a few layers with embossing paste, washi tape, and designer paper. I faux watercolored the flowers....stamp on watercolor paper with distress inks and then spritz with water. It really is a quick and easy way to get a watercolor affect. I added the cut out sentiment and a few enamel dots and enamel hearts. I hope you play along with us and have a wonderful weekend!

inspired by - birthday wishes

hello friends, it is time for this weeks inspired by challenge and we have an amazing sponsor, technique tuesday! I have used a flower set from the technique tuesday greenhouse society stamp of the month. It is called frangipani stamp and die set and I have stamp and cut it twice to achieve some layering. I added ink color to my embossing paste and then used a checkered stencil for a fun background. Technique Tuesday is giving away a greenhouse stamp and die of your choice on my instragram, 2klines; one post back...look for it and comment. Be sure to check out the other design teams projects and see what they created!
