MCT 48th New Release Sneak Day 2

Good Morning everyone and welcome to Day 2 of Sneaks for the 
My Creative Time 48th New Release!!
What did you think of yesterday's sneak??? Ready for more????
Today we are showcasing the new set~
Best Friend Background Stamp

For my card today, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and tried some new techniques. First I have this gorgeous set of zig watercolor markers that I have yet to try out so to make my card, I started out with some Tim Holtz Watercolor paper and 3 colors, making a colorful background. Next I stamped the new Best Friend Background Stamp onto my card mat, stamping partially and only covering the background stamp with a random pattern of ink. I think it gives the card some extra texture~ thoughts??
Then I moved onto the sentiment. I ended up mixing 2 sentiment stamps~ Things I Love.... & Fun Variety on the Inside & Out to make the "to my best" sentiment. I used the "friend" die cut from yesterday's sneak Friendships are Forever and cut it out using some sparkly black paper. To finish my card off, I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die for my card mat, added a strip of the black sparkly paper behind the popped up card mat and placed 2 black enamel dots as my embellishment.

  14. The partial inking background gives texture and has a place as it does on your card. Had you stamped fully the sentiment would be lost. Love the watercolor...a very pretty card idea! Wonderful job.
