For a Friend

Greetings to you all, I hope you are well.
Today a break from Christmas for you all! The inspiration behind my previous post.
I made this card for my good friend and fellow crafter and I loved it so much that I am making another!! (Well, I am blessed to have more than one friend so why not?!)

I like inking-to me, it's not crafting unless you get ink on yourself!! So this card uses lots of ink!!
It's incredibly bright and colourful (a bit of a departure from my usual colours!) but it's an upbeat sentiment being used and I thought it warranted a rainbow accompaniment :)

I used:
Friends are like Stars stamp by Inkylicious
Stars, Stars 1 and Star Cluster stamps by Lavinia Stamps
Versafine Onyx Black Ink

Distress inks in: Mustard Seed, Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Festive Berries, Mowed Lawn and Seedless Preserves
White card blank, black card, metallic gold card and black ribbon from my stash!

The various distress inks were applied and then splashed with water to give a multi tonal effect, once dried with a heat gun, the stars and sentiment were stamped, the backing was then mounted and layered onto the card, as were the sentiment and ribbon, before adding the bow to finish it off.

I hope you like this card-I had a lot of fun creating it :)
