I started my card by making my background paper out of watercolor paper, Tim Holtz Distress inks, and a water spritzer. I dabbed ink from three different ink pads on my waterproof mat, spritzed the ink with water, and laid the paper on the ink, gently moving it around until all of the white was covered, then let dry. Easy!

|Isn't Wryn sweet?|
My finished card is 4x5 inches, so I cut my card base 8x5, and folded in half. I rounded the corners. I trimmed the colored background paper down to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches, rounded the corners, and adhered it to the card base, toward the right side. Wren is 2 x 3 1/2, and is adhered to a slightly larger piece of card stock, corners rounded. I placed the stamped image on pop dots toward the upper right corner of the colored paper. Next is a piece of orange with white dots ribbon, tied in a simple bow toward the left side of the card. The accompanying sentiment, "friends are the flowers of life" was stamped onto a piece of colored paper, and adhered on pop dots. I finished the card with three pink gems to the left of the sentiment.
I truly had a great time with this project. Wren is one of many images available from Tiddly Inks, www.tiddlyinks.com. Stamped and digital images are available.
Until next time, take care,
