Hello Lovely

 I hope you had a nice weekend, ours was busy, but great. Today I have my second entry for this years Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Gallery Idol - Washi Tape contest. My card features the Papertrey Ink stamp set "Reason To Smile, and "Wet Paint". To achieve my faux watercolor effect I inked up my stamps, and lightly spritzed the inked stamp with water before stamping. I love the subtle watercolor look. I added strips of black polka dot washi tape to the bottom of the top layer, and added two rows of black thread machine stitching. I finished my card with a PTI Button Stack die-cut using silver card stock by American Crafts. I am glad you stopped by today and I hope you have a nice day!
