I see skies of blue...Technique Junkies Showcase

Happy Wednesday all! Today I wanted to share a project featuring the Technique Junkies November release sentiment stamp Wonderful World

This stamp pairs perfectly with this simple background, created by running a piece of watercolor card stock through a "clouds" embossing folder and inking over with Distress inks (several shades of blue).

The sentiment itself was  stamped in black Versafine ink onto watercolor paper as well and "popped" onto the center of the background.
Thanks for joining me today and be sure to stay tuned to the Technique Junkies Design Team blog for the entire 30 days of Christmas going on now! 
Embrace Imperfection!

For my project I am featuring the stamp Coffee with Friends.

The background piece was created by using Alcohol Inks on a special paper called Yupo- then it  was dry embossed using a Tim Holtz Texture Fade folder. Such a unique look for the background and a great way to showcase this sentiment stamp!
