Neat & Tangled/Cosmo Cricket Collaboration Week - Day 1

Hey everyone!

We're so excited to be collaborating with Cosmo Cricket this week!

Cosmo Cricket revealed their new Just Add Watercolor line at CHA, watercolor papers printed with clear and gold foil resist.  The Design Team has been busy creating amazing projects with these goodies, and you are in for a real treat.

We will be showcasing projects from two designers each day this week, and Julie at Cosmo Cricket has also created some projects using Neat & Tangled stamps.  Be sure to head over to the Cosmo Cricket blog to check those out and leave a comment.  She'll draw a winner for a $25 gift certificate to Neat & Tangled.  Of course you'll also want to leave comments here.  At the end of the week one lucky winner will be drawn to receive a 12" Watercolor Paper Deck.


Ok, let's get to the good stuff!  Today we have Anna and Danielle sharing their projects.

Hi it's Anna, I made a layout for today.  I colored three sheets of just Add Watercolor paper, cut two of them and sewed them into one big 12x12 square.


I white embossed the sentiment from the Origami map set as well as a flower from the Paper Cut Flowers set, and used some sequins as accents.

Hi Friends! It's Danielle and I have a card for you using the 6x6 Just Add Water Color paper pad.  Can I just say how easy this paper makes it to create gorgeous backgrounds? I simple cut a piece of the water color paper to the size I wanted and went to town with my paints! I heat embossed the flower and sentiment from Paper Cut Flowers onto some vellum. I broke out my sewing machine for a little stitching around the edges, and at the last minute I decided to splatter some black paint on my card base to add a little more interest.




Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to check out Julie's post at the Cosmo Cricket blog and come back tomorrow for some more inspiration!
