I Wouldn't Have Missed Being Your Friend

Isn't this quote just an awesome stamp!!!  It's part of the newest release from Quietfire Design that I hadn't used yet (there are still a few more to use).  I have several friends that are going to be getting this on a card sometime!!

The folded base here is Distress Core'dinations... sanded around the edges after it was folded.  The main piece is Ranger's Specialty stamping paper... first inked with all the newest colors (Spring Set) of Distress Inks (Totally LOVE these colors!!!)... then I stuck on some Heidi Swap leaf masks and inked again with the same colors... stamped with a Studio 490 text image (Live and Make Art set) in peacock feathers (I had started taking the masks off but not all of them, so some leaves are stamped over with the text and some not), removed the rest of the masks, dried it, flicked with water, blotted, dried, and the quote stamped with Archival Ink jet black.  It's layered on a piece of medium purple cardstock leaving a small border.  The Tim Holtz butterfly border die is cut from the Specialty stamping paper, inked with shaded lilac, doodled on with a black pen and a white pen and then yellow sharpie over the white pen, black gems on the bodies, and glued to the bottom of the card.  A scrap strip of the same Distress Core'dinations sanded and layered on top of the white edge.  Tim's Ideaology roses trim added on top... the roses are inked with squeezed lemonade, sprayed with water, dried, and the top rubbed over with peacock feathers.
