Christmas Cuties / GDT for CSI: Case File 103

Hello, friends :)  I can't believe Christmas is over...that was fast!  I hope all of you who celebrate had a wonderful time with family and friends.  Today I wanted to share my final project as a Guest Designer over at CSI.  A huge thank you to Debbi for inviting me to play this month!  I had a great time, and I really enjoyed cracking the case files :)

Here's the most recent one...Case File No. 103.  It's beautiful and festive just for the Christmas holidays :)

I decided to create a background from scratch using watercolors, washi tapes and stamps.  I love doing this because it's easy, fast, random and fun!  You just add layers of everything, and you really can't make a mistake.

For the Evidence, I used birds, stars, circles, horizontal lines, wood and transparent accents.  I like how it turned out...very fun and bright, I think :)

A close up of the bottom half....I used two different fonts of Thickers, and added a few buttons with cord bows.  I just love my border stamps....especially this stitched one.

I added some gold paint to my little wooden bird...I love that he's shiny now :)

I've been on a sequin kick lately...especially on Christmas pages!  The white ones remind me of snow...something we never see down here in Florida.

I've had this Christmas word stamp for years, and I still love it.  And I love Staz On dries quick and you can stamp on anything and it won't smudge!

Thanks so much for stopping by today....I hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays!
