Friend Wreath

Such a super site for the Inspiration Challenge (IC684)! After much browsing, I chose THIS. It reminded me of a lovely stamp I have but have not used.

I used my Misti to stamp the image onto watercolor paper & stamped it once w/ lt green ink on the leaves & again w/ pink ink on the flowers. After watercoloring it, I decided the image outlines didn’t show up enough, so I stamped over it w/ gold ink & heat embossed w/ gold powder. I used an angled border die to cut the bottom & insert a piece of flower print paper, before putting them back together. The gold stripe edges are washi tape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
