Friend

I keep missing the deadline at ODBD, but this week I made it.  Had to play along in a challenge perfect for me--no coloring!  Watercolor paper was covered with Gesso before sponging on VersaMagic Pink Petunia & Aquatic Splash. The butterfly flourish from ODBD Friendship stamp set wass stamped in Delicata Silvery Shimmer & the sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black. The panel was die cut with Spellbinders Labels One & matted with black cardstock die cut with Decorative Labels One.  One of the printed papers from ODBD Heart & Soul Collection was die cut with ODBD border die & then I added Gesso & the same 2 inks so it matched.  The paper flowers were watercolored with the pink ink & swiped with the silver. 
I splattered the pink, green & silver inks on the card front using a water brush & mounted the panel with foam tape.  I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Wednesday. Thanks for taking time to come by.
