Friend Card

Hi Friends:  Today's creation is a friendship card.  I started with watercolor paper, then stamped my sentiment in the center.  I used the purple Distress Inks to stamp my images around the sentiment, using masks to create the images.  Once all of the images were stamped, I stamped the centers with Versamark ink, then embossed them with gold embossing powder.  I used a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen and Glossy Accents to highlight some of the stamped images.  While the Glossy Accents was drying, I used the Versamark and same gold embossing powder to create the gold strips behind the card panel.  I mounted the card on a purple panel, then on a white card base.  I finished it with a purple bow.  (The card is prettier in person - no matter how many photos I took, I couldn't seem to capture the true purple colors and the glimmer of the Wink of Stella pen.  Oh well - maybe I need to take a photography course!)   Thanks for taking a peek.  Have a great day!
