Card for a friend by Angie Coomber
Hello arty friends,
Angie here with a card inspired by me missing my best friend who lives further away from me than I would like.
I'm a big fan of sending happy mail and often send handmade cards and other goodies to my friends - hopefully they enjoy receiving them!
For this card I cut a piece of card a little bit smaller than the size of the card blank, as well as the pink mat to go underneath the image.
I used a Versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder to stamp & emboss some background images on the white card.
Next I used Distress Oxides to create the background colours.
I used various pieces of coloured card, which were also made using Distress Oxides, to stamp a selection of images from the Carved Whimsy Wood set, as well as two sets of wings from the Collage Elements set.
I chose two girls from my Tim Holtz paper dolls collection and arranged these, together with the stamped images, on the card, then glued them down.
I stamped and cut out a quote from the You Rock set and adhered it to the image.
I used white sparkly embossing powder on the edges of the image, then added some stickles ot the wings and flowers. I lightly outlined the girls with a black Stabilo All pen and added a little bit of white doodling. Finally I glued the image to the pink mat and glued this to the card blank.
I hope you like it.
Hugs from Angie x
