thank you friend with AvocadoArts

thank you for being my friend flowers

It’s a post day! Yay! We are all using April’s Kit, Sew Nice along with May’s kit, Thoughts and Smiles.

The flowers were stamped onto glossy cardstock with Archival Ink, along with the sentiment. (Both the blue and green flowers.) The ink was heat set. Then I applied Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks over the top with a foam applicator. Its an amazing new effect I learned while taking an online class from Tim Holtz. The colored images appear to be “inside” the paper. Its fantastic!

Be sure and stop by the rest of the team to be inspired!
