Friend Card


I think this card came together very well.  I started with one of the backgrounds I had left from the online class I taught for Quietfire Design... look here to see how the background was done.  Be with those quote and the word friend are Quietfire Design stamps.... friend is actually part of a quote stamp - I used removable tape on the rubber stamp to mask the words around friend, inked the word friend, removed the tape, and stamped onto a piece of cardstock.. I then punched it out with a 3/4" circle punch which fits the center of the water bottle cap (see picture below) and added color with Distress Inks... the bottle cap was colored with butterscotch alcohol ink.  Tiny gold holeless beads attached with Glossy Accents.  Large flower (Stampers Anonymous - Studio 490) stamped on grungepaper, cut out, stamped with a Studio 490 background image, colored with Distress Inks, and coated with rock candy Distress Stickles.  Flourish (Tim Holtz die) is also stamped with a Studio 490 background image and colored with Distress Inks.  Fence is a Tim Holtz On the Edge die cut.

Wanda, this is wonderful and I just adore the flower. I will be travelling tomorrow and will have to buy bottled way on the way now. Actually going to be in Iowa. Just driving along the river and seeing the sites in Prairie du chien and then crossing over to Iowa so I can say I've been there. Never been in the state otherwise. I'm so worldly, you know. LOL
