True Friends Are Magic

Thursday, February 25, 2016

Today is the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog HopMy eye was drawn to an area on the bottom left of the inspiration photo.  I built my design around that small section.
 
 
  I started by adding two shades of pink distress ink to a piece of white cardstock.  On top of that, I stamped just the vein images from Leaf Prints.  I also added a stamped sentiment from Half and Half.  On another piece of white cardstock I created a patterned paper by repeatedly stamping another sentiment from the Half and Half set.   
 

I layered up all the pieces and added another die cut word from the EH Positive Word die set to finish it off!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be by to visit you when I come home from work!
