Across the Miles...

Hi, everyone - it's Kathy filling in for Anne today. I hope you're having a great weekend so far!

If you don't already know, I'm the "background/sentiment stamp" member of the team, and today I'm showing a card using a loose watercolor technique on one of the Flora and Fauna background stamps. It's bright, and summery, and just a bit shabby chic...



The sentiment running up the side of the watercolored piece is from Set 25, Handwritten Phrases - its font was a perfect blend with the text background on the rose stamp!

If you're interested in more of the details, I've added a few more on my blog entry for today.

Tomorrow Crafty Lou will be here with more inspiration for you, so be sure to stop by again. In the meantime, have a great day!
