{The Cat's Pajamas} TCP Tuesday #327

It's time for another TCP Tuesday at The Cat's Pajamas with a challenge to use Stars on your project. The challenge runs for two weeks and The Cat’s Pajamas products are not required although we do love it when you use our stamps and dies.

I've been exploring new watercolored backgrounds to try and I found this one at Lime Doodle Design that I loosely followed. I first stamped the starry image from the Winter Style set onto watercolor cardstock using Versamark ink and then white heat embossed. I used several colors of Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors along with Spun Sugar distress ink to create a dusk like sky. I cut another piece from watercolor cardstock using a die from the Fancy Flip set and watercolored with the same colors to blend in. I pieced together the sentiment stamping with Blueberry ink. After attaching the piece to the background using foam tape, I added the word Joy cut from blueberry cardstock using the Joy CutUps and than a star cut with the 3x3 Stars.
