TIME to celebrate Friends!

Friends are the flowers of life - isn't that true?

For this ONE LAYER card,  I placed the image to one side (so I could make a border), layered the sentiment and printed it off twice, once on the card, once on printer paper to use as a mask.  The sentiment has smooshing behind it (the flower is masked first) to link it to the flower and the plant is handpainted using DistressInks as paints.   The image is protected with masking so I could stamp a block stamp over the pot.  A little touch of sparkle in the centre of the flower.
The border is also stamped onto the insert.

Image: Morgans Art
Border stamp: Hero Arts
Sentiment: TiddlyInks
Block stamp: Woodware
Also: Distress Inks, Versacolor inks, Opal Dust
