Hello Friend ...

Good morning! I'm over on the GI Blog today sharing a friendship card featuring my H267 Potted Flowers and B152 Hello Friend, available at the Great Impressions Stamps.

I stamped the Potted Flowers on Strathmore Watercolor Paper using Marvy Le Plume II Markers as my ink. I proceeded to apply water to draw out the colors, and added more. Once done I used my pierced dies to cut the image out, along with some stitched dies for the background.

I love this stamp and had a blast coloring this image in with my watercolor markers.

Using StazOn Black Ink I stamped the sentiment on Clear Cardstock, cut it out with my punch, and used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher to layer it over my colored image.

Final step was to use 3D Foam Tape to add my panel to the background design. I love how the softness of my panel pops against the background.
