Circle Doodle Thanks

There's something not so bad about being stuck inside on a cold, snowy day.  No better way to spend this kind of day than by being cozy AND crafty!

I've had this SSS Circle Doodle background stamp for a while and I have been dying to use it... so today was THE day!  I started by embossing the stamp on watercolor paper with white embossing powder and then water colored the circles using distress inks with a little bit of water.  After it was dry, I cut the bottom shape with a die from the MFT Blueprints 18 set.  On a sheet of Limelight cardstock, I dry embossed the circle doodles leaving a watermark look to coordinate with the bottom of the panel and then rounded two of the opposite corners to soften it a little.

For the sentiment, I used a die from Impression Obsession.  I cut the "thanks" two times.  Once in blue and once in white.  I offset them on each other to create a bit of a shadow.  Just a blue "thanks" looked too strong and a white "thanks" looked a bit lost, but together, they worked!

And for the finishing touch... sequins, of course!
